Get a Clearer Picture of Total College Costs

Are you wondering if the financial aid award letters from colleges show the complete picture? It may be a fuzzy or incomplete snapshot when you’re looking for a clear portrayal of a complicated subject.

Iowa Student Loan is ready to help you get a clearer picture of the total costs, aid and shortfalls over four years in one-on-one sessions at open houses across the state in March and April. Each student who attends a College Financial Aid Award Letter Night will be entered into a drawing for a $100 door prize at each event.

Bring your financial aid award information, and our experts will help you experience the College Funding Forecaster, a free online tool that allows you to better understand how expected costs and aid will add up over four undergraduate years.
