File Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid for the 2021-2022 School Year

Now is the time to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)!

If you will be enrolled in college next year (Fall 2021, Spring 2022, Summer 2022), you can now complete the 2021-2022 FAFSA to determine your financial aid eligibility. You will use your 2019 tax information. Financial aid consists of federal and state grants as well as federal loans and work-study.

Have you heard about the Iowa Last Dollar Scholarship? This is another reason you need to complete the FAFSA now. If you are an Iowa resident enrolled in an eligible program you may be eligible for the Iowa Last Dollar funds regardless of you and your parent’s income situation, so please don’t miss this opportunity. Please visit to see the full list of qualified programs.

If you would like FREE one-on-one assistance completing your 2021-2022 FAFSA, you can set up an individual, virtual appointment with an ICAN Advisor. To schedule an appointment call (877) 272-4692 or schedule a visit online on ICAN’s website. On the ICAN website you will also find a checklist of items to have available for your appointment. Again, this assistance is FREE, and you will be meeting with someone who knows the FAFSA application process well.
