Message from the Director

Welcome to the Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) at Iowa State University. Our mission is to provide financial services to help you enroll and graduate from Iowa State University. Last year, we assisted over 30,000 Iowa State University students obtain more than $410 million in financial aid. Because financial aid can come from many sources, with federal, state, and institutional regulations attached to each, the process can seem overwhelming. We pledge to assist you in understanding each step of the process and each type of aid you are receiving so you can utilize these funds to accomplish your dream of obtaining a degree.

We’ll be here for every step of the process. Don’t hesitate to contact us with questions. We’re glad to help!
