The Iowa College Student Aid Commission supports postsecondary education in Iowa by ad-

ministering income-sensitive student financing that promotes access and academic choice, aca-

demic recognition, and professional staffing in critical shortage fields; providing coordinated 

information describing student aid programs and Iowa’s postsecondary education; effectively and 

efficiently administering existing programs authorized by state and federal governments; and 

continually evaluating and promoting changes to improve student assistance programs. 

The commission is responsible for planning and administering programs of assistance to both 

public and independent colleges and universities throughout Iowa. Represented on the 14-member 

commission are the Board of Regents, the Department of Education, Iowa independent colleges 

and universities, Iowa community colleges, each house of the General Assembly, Iowa lending 

institutions, Iowa students, student loan borrowers, and the general public. The lender, student, 

general public, and independent college, community college, and borrower representatives are 

appointed by the Governor. The director of the Department of Education serves by virtue of of-

fice. The remaining four members are appointed by the bodies they represent. 

Established in April 1964 to implement the federal assistance program for construction of aca-

demic facilities provided by the Higher Education Act of 1963, the commission now administers 

the programs described below. 



Federal Family Education Loan Programs 

Stafford Student Loan Program – This program was implemented in 1979 and allows students 

to borrow from commercial lending institutions at a low rate of interest to meet educational ex-

penses at postsecondary educational institutions. The loans are insured by the commission and 



reinsured by the federal government under the terms of agreement between the Department of 

Education and the commission. Students may receive subsidized loans (the federal government 

pays interest while students are in school and in deferment status) based on financial need; all 

students are eligible to apply for unsubsidized loans (students pay the interest). 



Federal PLUS/GRAD PLUS Program – The PLUS Program was implemented in 1982. The 

Iowa PLUS Program permits parents to secure unsubsidized long-term loans at reasonable interest 

rates from commercial lending institutions to cover postsecondary educational expenses. The 

GRAD PLUS Program was implemented July 1, 2006, and provides graduate or professional 

students with increased unsubsidized federal loan eligibility and minimizes the need for alterna-

tive loans. The loans are insured by the commission and reinsured by the federal government 

under the terms of an agreement between the United States Department of Education and the 

commission.

attending not-for-profit institutions and $4,988,561 for students attending for-profit institutions.  

The maximum grant is $4,000. The amount of the grant, based on the student’s estimated finan-

cial need, is limited to tuition and fees minus the average charges at a state university.

provide financial assistance to needy Iowa resident students enrolled in vocational-technical or

of $1,200 per year. In 2009-2010, the program is funded at $2,512,958.

For academic year 2009-2010, qualified students may receive a maximum of $6,704 at eligible 

four-year institutions and no more than full tuition at Iowa community colleges. In 2009-2010, the 

program is funded at $2,502,537.

2009-2010, the program is funded at $687,510. 



Iowa National Guard Educational Assistance Program – Established in 1996, the National

members of the Iowa National Guard to receive a maximum grant of $6,704.  The 2009-2010 

allocation for this program is $4,024,545. 

Iowa Grant Program – The Iowa Grant Program was enacted in 1990 to provide grants to Iowa 

resident undergraduate students attending Iowa regents universities, community colleges, or ac-

credited independent colleges or universities. This statewide non-sector-based grant program 

provides need-based awards of up to $1,000. The 2009-2010 appropriation is $981,743. Federal 

Leveraging Educational Assistance Program (LEAP) funding is used to supplement the state ap-

propriation. In 2009-2010, the Iowa LEAP allocation is $742,670. 



Iowa Work-Study Program – In 1987, the General Assembly established the Iowa Work-Study

Scholarship. Recipients receive a one-time award based on participation at the Iowa State Fair.

cation materials.

tion Statistics. An annual digest based on the data has been published since 1975 and is available
