Snapshot of Financial Aid Process
Start Early. ICO only requires the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply for financial aid. This form is available January 1 for the upcoming Fall term. Please note that you must reapply for federal aid every school year.
Review the eligibility requirements for federal financial aid.
Complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. This saves time and helps avoid common errors that are more difficult to catch on a paper application. Plus there is no charge for completing the FAFSA.
- Our school code is 001689
- Tip: You should save all records and all other materials used in completing the application because you may need them later if your application is selected for verification by the Department of Education. You should also print out a copy of your FAFSA before you submit it and keep it for your records. [Note: Consider a pull out box with the tip]
Apply for loans and work-study opportunities. By completing the FAFSA and submitting all appropriate documentation, students will automatically be considered for a financial aid package that covers the cost of attendance and includes work-study, student loans and scholarships offered by the College.
Partner with ICO’s Office of Student Financial Services. This office will work with students to assist them in finding the most affordable ways to finance their education and manage student loans. On interview day, an ICO financial aid information packet is made available to candidates and includes information on financial aid programs including the Federal Work-study Program, Federal Stafford Loan, Unsubsidized Stafford Loans, Health Professions Student Loans (HPSL), and the Perkins Loan Program.
