Financial Aid

Get help paying for your IU Bloomington education

You’ll probably pay for college with the help of financial aid. There are many types of aid—scholarships, of course, but also grants, loans, work-study, and more. The types and amounts you receive will depend on many factors, including your academic merit and your financial need.

Whatever your circumstances, you need to understand financial aid so you’ll have realistic expectations for what you’ll receive. It’ll also help you minimize your post-college debt.
