Design a college student aid package that works for your household.

The majority of USI students receive some form of college financial aid, so our financial assistance counselors are experts at navigating the financial aid system. Our counselors will ensure that you meet financial aid deadlines, so you get the most grant and scholarship aid available. In addition, the Financial Assistance office will help you complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), determine your eligibility for financial aid and build a sustainable financial plan.

Student Financial Assistance taps into four primary types of student financial aid:

  • Grants, including federal college grant programs (such as Pell and FSEOG), state of Indiana grant programs and grants for military families. These types of funds do not require repayment and are income driven.
  • Scholarships from many sources, including hundreds of scholarships sponsored by the USI Foundation.
  • Work study, including the Federal Work Study (FWS) program.
  • Student loans from government and private-sector lenders.
