FAFSA Filing Options

You may choose any of these three methods to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA):

  • Login to apply online (Recommended) or
  • Complete a PDF FAFSA (Note: PDF FAFSAs must be mailed for processing) or
  • Request a paper FAFSA by calling us at 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243) or 319-337-5665. If you are hearing impaired, contact the TTY line at 1-800-730-8913.

Complete a PDF FAFSA

Select the school year for which you are applying for financial aid. For example, if you plan to attend college between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014, click The 2013-2014 School Year (July 1, 2013 – June 30, 2014). If you plan to attend college between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013, click the other link. If you are applying for a summer session, check with your college to verify which application you should complete.

The PDF FAFSA is available for you to print and fill out manually or is screen-fillable. Screen-fillable means you can enter your data on the screen before printing. If you choose this option you will not be able to save your data to your PC.
