Financial Aid & Scholarships
In addition to developing local scholarship assistance programs, the Northwest campus participates in the full variety of federal and state-sponsored programs. The financial aid program serves students from diverse parts of society. Every student who applies for financial aid and has demonstrated financial need is assured some type of financial assistance.
In order to be considered for financial assistance, a student must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). These forms are available through the local high schools or the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships at IU Northwest.
Completed FAFSA applications should be mailed in time to reach the federal processor by March 10 for the following academic year to meet the state grant deadline. Financial aid applications may also be completed electronically on the Web.
Financial assistance, in various forms, is available for students attending any Indiana University campus. Because scholarship and grant funds are limited, the student's entire need for funds cannot always be met from these sources. Therefore, several types of financial aid may be combined to meet the student's financial need. It is not uncommon for a student, particularly with a large financial need, to receive assistance in the forms of scholarships, grants, loans, and employment earnings, or some combination of these sources.
