Get ready to apply for financial aid
You’ll start the process by filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The IU Fort Wayne school code is E40457.
Your application starts with the FAFSA
Be sure to submit a FAFSA each year to be considered for federal and state aid. We use your FAFSA to determine your eligibility, calculate your need, award your financial aid, and prepare your financial aid notification (FAN).
When to submit your FAFSA
The FAFSA becomes available October 1, with a priority deadline of March 10 for the upcoming school year. Applying by the priority deadline will assist you in maximizing your financial aid eligibility. Students who do not meet this priority deadline should still complete the FAFSA as we are able to receive FAFSA results and process aid until the last date of your enrollment for the associated school year.
What you’ll need
Make sure you have the important pieces of information listed below. Having everything together before you start will make filling out the FAFSA easier.
