Financial Aid

Student Financial Services assists you with applying for Financial Aid and understanding the process involved. The process requires various applications, documentation and deadlines.

Important Information

The 2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now open! Students and applicants for admission interested in receiving federal and state aid for the 2019-2020 academic year must complete the FAFSA. Submitting your FAFSA now ensures that you meet Iona’s April 15 priority filing deadline. Because the 2019-2020 FAFSA uses 2016 tax information, you and your parents can use the IRS data retrieval tool. This allows you to transfer tax information over directly from the IRS so there is no longer a  need to estimate income and go back later to update your FAFSA. Avoid processing delays by filling out your 2019-2020 FAFSA now!
