We are in the midst of an unprecedented situation. First and foremost, we are working to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff — and to implement the continuation of classes and essential university operations through the remainder of the spring semester.
Our leaders are working to develop a more complete understanding of the many financial implications the COVID-19 crisis is having — and will have — on Iowa State. That includes questions relating to your financial aid. As you may imagine, expected impacts are changing daily. The processes we will need to respond in a consistent manner to these questions will take careful thought, and, they will take time.
Please be patient with us during these difficult times. We understand your need for answers. We hope to have those to everyone as soon as we’re able — we want to not only be timely, but accurate, fair and consistent.
The Office of Student Financial Aid is currently closed to walk-in and telephone traffic. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions, and include your student University ID number if you have one.
Thank you again for your concern. Our Iowa State community is resilient, and we are doing everything we can to work together to support our mission. Please do all you can to keep yourself safe and healthy. Regularly check the ISU COVID-19 Safety Page for the latest updates.
