9/30/22

Paying for college is often one of the biggest concerns students and their families have about college. Filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) can ease some of those fears and is an important step in helping finance a college education. It’s also required of all students filing for financial aid and by most colleges for their college scholarships.

Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) can help you get the process started at our upcoming FAFSA Assistance Nights:

  • Tuesday, October 18, 4 - 6 p.m.
    Clinton Community College, Room #129, 1000 Lincoln Blvd., Clinton

  • Wednesday, October 19, 4 - 6 p.m.
    Muscatine Community College, Loper Hall, Room #111, 152 Colorado St., Muscatine

  • Thursday, October 20, 4 - 6 p.m.
    Scott Community College, Room #1112, 500 Belmont Rd., Bettendorf

At these events you’ll learn everything you need to know about accessing federal and state student aid such as grants, work-study, and loans to help pay for college. Our Financial Aid Specialists will be on hand to answer your questions and walk you through the application steps.

They’ll also help you determine if you qualify for Iowa’s Last-Dollar Scholarship. Through this exciting new program, if you enroll in any one of several different in-demand career technology programs at EICC, the state will pay your remaining tuition balance. All you need to do is complete the FAFSA and the Last-Dollar Scholarship will then fill the gap for the entire cost of tuition.

The sessions are free and open to everyone, regardless of whether they have already committed to attending one of our colleges or are still considering their options. Everyone is encouraged to file the FAFSA and determine their eligibility for financial aid. Many people are surprised to learn they are, indeed, eligible.
