Welcome to the Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) at Iowa State University. Our mission is to provide financial services to help you enroll and graduate from Iowa State University.
Because financial aid can come from many sources, with federal, state, and institutional regulations attached to each, the process can seem overwhelming. We pledge to assist you in understanding each step of the process and each type of aid you are receiving so you can utilize these funds to accomplish your dream of obtaining a degree.

Learn how to apply for financial aid
Understand the verification process
Know the types of aid that may be awarded to you
Maintain eligibility for the aid received
Pay your bill to Iowa State University

Other resources are available through:

Scholarships to assist in paying your costs
The Office of Student Financial Success that can help you manage money, credit, and understand student loans
Student Employment which enables you to earn funds while in school

We’ll be here for every step of the process. Don’t hesitate to contact us with questions. We’re glad to help!
