Need-based aid may be used to supplement other assistance you receive. The criteria for receiving need-based aid for graduate students differs from the criteria used for undergraduate students. If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (and a current or prospective grad student), you should apply annually for need-based aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Indiana University’s Priority Deadline: March 10
Applications after this date will also be considered.
Many students rely on loans and part-time employment to fund their graduate education. Students should complete the FAFSA after January 1 each year and as soon as they know they are considering going to graduate school. Admission is not required to complete this form, but no financial aid offer can be finalized until the student is admitted. The FAFSA can be completed online.Complete the FAFSA online Get help from IU’s Student Central on Union
