- Outside Scholarship Information
We are beginning to receive scholarship information from outside resources for the 2016-2017 academic year. Be sure to check out our outside scholarship page for more information.
- 2015-2016 FAFSA
Although the state of Indiana filing deadline has passed (March 10), you can still file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.gov to be considered for federal financial aid. The FAFSA is used to determine eligibility for federal, state, and University financial aid programs including the Direct (Student) Loan and Direct (Parent) PLUS Loan.
- Check before you drop!
After the first week of the term, be sure to meet with a financial aid counselor before dropping coursework. Your aid could be impacted by dropping a course or courses.
- Know the renewal criteria for each of your awards! Some grants and scholarships require not only that you are a full-time student, but that you earn a certain number of credit hours each year in order to maintain eligibility.
