Whether you’re an incoming first-year student or perhaps returning to college after a hiatus we understand that the financial aid process can appear overwhelming. That’s why we recommend completing these simple steps first:
1. Apply for Admission.
2. Complete the FAFSA.
3. Check your Student Aid Report
By completing these 3 simple steps you’ll be well positioned to making sure your education is a sound, affordable investment.
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
To ensure that you are considered for the maximum amount of financial aid please fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This application is available starting October 1 of the year prior to the beginning of the academic year. The FAFSA requirement does not apply to international students and Iona College does not require the College Scholarship Services (CSS) Profile.
Need help filing your FAFSA?
The U.S. Department of Education has compiled lots of resources
for you to learn all about the FAFSA and the financial aid process.
I need more help. What Can I do?
Email Student Financial Services or visit our office located on the second floor of McSpedon Hall. We have computer kiosks available where you can work on documents related to student financial matters and discuss questions in real time.
I've applied to Iona and have completed my FAFSA. What's next?
That's great! You will hear back from us in December in regards to your application to Iona.
After you've completed your FAFSA, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). This report contains useful information and it is the best way to ensure you've completed your FAFSA correctly. If further action on your part is required, your Student Aid Report will tell you exactly what is needed. When reviewing your SAR, please make sure it includes Iona's School ID: 002737.
