Student Financial Services encompasses Financial Aid and Student Accounts. Together, our staff helps parents and students understand the costs associated with an Upper Iowa University education, and to find means to meet those costs.

Through federal, state, and institutional financial aid programs, as well a variety of educational loan options and a payment plan program, we help families manage the cost of a quality education. Whether you make lump sum payments now or spread payments out over months or years, we strive to provide the services needed to make Upper Iowa University a financial reality for our students.

In accordance with University Policy, all semester charges, including tuition, room and board, and additional and special fees, are due and payable the Wednesday before the start of the semester. Payment plans must be in place by Wednesday before the start of the semester if charges and fees won't be paid in full.

A default of payment results in the student's enrollment being delayed or denied; satisfactory arrangements must be made before reinstatement. Awarded financial aid eligibility is applied to the student's account each semester upon verification of attendance. Diplomas, certificates, or transcripts will not be released until all financial obligations are met.

The 2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now available and should be completed once you have filed your 2017 federal income tax return.
