Understanding Your Financial Aid Award
Cost of Attendance
ScholarshipsThe Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) coordinates a scholarship and award program that benefits nearly half of all Veterinary Medicine Students.
Students are selected for scholarships and awards by the CVM Student Awards Committee, which is made up of seven faculty members from throughout the College.
- New students: your application for admission is used by the College of Veterinary Medicine to make scholarship decisions.
- Current students: submit OneApp on an annual basis to be considered for scholarships.
LoansThe FAFSA must be filed every year to qualify for loans. All loans are in the student’s name and repaid when the student stops attending and/or graduates.

- The Graduate and Veterinary Medicine PLUS Loan is a credit-based loan that a FAFSA filer may qualify for to cover remaining education expenses
- The Health Professions Student Loan (HPSL) and/or Loan for Disadvantaged Students (LDS) are need-based loans, and eligible students will be notified if they can receive either or both loans
Planning to Pay
- Review financial resources (loans, savings, cash, etc.) that can be used to pay each semester
- Create a budget for non-billable expenses (ie: off-campus housing, food, day-to-day living expenses) to determine if loans are needed to cover those costs
- Accept, reduce, or decline loans every semester in AccessPlus
- Monitor borrowing and the anticipated repayment amount in AccessPlus by selecting “Loan Payment Est” from the “Financial Aid” menu option.
