Spanish-speaking volunteers and financial aid officers will be on hand to provide general information regarding the financial aid process and how to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Colleges use FAFSA data to determine your federal aid eligibility, which includes grants, work-study options and loans. Moreover, many states and colleges use FAFSA data to award their own aid.

So whether you’ve already committed to attending one of our colleges, or are still considering your options, this is a great opportunity to get your most pressing questions answered. We will guide you through all your options and you’ll leave knowing your next steps—you could even have your FAFSA filed that night!

This event is offered at no-cost and is open to the public. Parents are encouraged to attend.

Students should bring:

  • Social Security Card or Alien Registration Number (Parents’ as well, if applicable.)
  • 2020 Federal Income Tax Form (Parents’ as well, if applicable.)
  • W-2 and other records of money earned
  • FSA ID, to sign-in electronically (if you do not have one, we can help set that up)

In addition, you can learn more about Iowa’s Last-Dollar Program. Through this exciting program, if you enroll in any one of several different in-demand career technology programs, the state will pay your remaining tuition balance. Even if you receive no federal or state aid, the program will pay your entire tuition. That's right, regardless of your personal income situation, you will pay no tuition costs.

This event is being hosted in partnership with Iowa State Extension Office (Muscatine), Aligned Impact Muscatine County (AIM), United Way of Muscatine, League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and the Iowa College Access Network (ICAN).
