Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
The FAFSA is the application required for most types of need-based aid. The FAFSA must be completed in order for a student to be considered for federal and state grants, federal student loans (including Stafford and Perkins), and Federal Work-Study.
State Minority Teacher Scholarship
The Minority Teacher Scholarship is administered by the Indiana Comission for Higher Education; a student must be an Indiana resident to be eligible. Students must also complete the appropriate academic year´s FAFSA. More information is available through their website.
Federal Parent PLUS Loan
The Federal Parent PLUS Loan may be borrowed by a biological or adoptive parent, or a step-parent, on behalf of a dependent, undergraduate student. The loan is subject to credit approval. For the 2013-2014 academic year and beyond we will be moving to an online application. You may complete the application online at https://studentloans.gov.
Federal Graduate PLUS Loan
The Federal Graduate PLUS Loan may be borrowed by graduate or professional school students on their own behalf. The loan is subject to credit approval.
Federal Perkins Loan
The Federal Perkins Loan is a low interest loan for students with exceptional need. Your school is your lender. For IU East students, the "school" for Perkins loan purposes is IU Student Loan Administration.
Child of Certain Veterans and Public Safety Officers Supplemental Grant Program
This program provides tuition assistance for eligible children of disabled Indiana veterans, children of POW/MIA from the Vietnam War, eligible children/spouses of certain members of the Indiana National Guard killed while serving on active duty, and eligible children/spouses of certain Indiana public safety officers killed in the line of duty. In addition, applicants must also file the appropriate academic year´s FAFSA and pay Indiana resident tuition/fees.
Indiana Senior Citizen Fee Waiver
This tuition waiver for certain Indiana public colleges and universities is equal to 50 percent of the school's in-state tuition. The institution is not required to waive the tuition of a senior for more than nine (9) credit hours each semester. The school is also not required to waive fees for applications, registration, laboratory work or self-supporting programs. Seniors, therefore, will still have to pay for some of their college costs. Please review the request form for more information.
Returning Student Scholarship Application
In order to be considered for an IU East scholarship, you must fill out a scholarship application online from your Onestart account. Eligibility is based on academic merit, although some scholarships also consider financial need. These need-based scholarships require that the student file the FAFSA (www.fafsa.ed.gov) .
Veteran Request for Enrollment Certification
