Financial Aid



Students must apply for financial aid each year. Financial aid is not automatically renewed.

Approximately 74% of all ISU students receive some form of financial aid. Aid comes in many forms, including state and federal financial aid, loans, and scholarships.

Students are eligible for consideration for financial aid programs if they are seeking ISU degrees and are U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens.

To apply for aid, follow the instructions below.

  Step 1:  Apply for Aid

Students can, and should, apply for aid prior to (or simultaneous with) applying for admission to the University. For instructions, and an online application, go to

The federal school code for Indiana State University is 001807.

Note: Students may attend ISU and another institution simultaneously -- and receive aid to cover both schools. A Consortium Agreement is required. For details, see taking classes elsewhere.

  Step 2:  Check Financial Aid Status

Once admitted to ISU, students can check their financial aid status by logging on to the MyISU Portal.

  Receiving Aid

Once aid is approved, students cannot receive aid until they are admitted to the University and registered for courses. To continue to receive aid, students must meet specific requirements. See satisfactory academic progress.
