Indiana University Code of Conduct


March 10th is the IU Northwest FAFSA priority deadline for the 2016-2017 academic year. You must complete your 2016-2017 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by March 10 to be considered for the most possible aid. Be sure to include IU Northwest school code, 001815. The 2016-2017 FAFSA is used to award aid for fall 2016, spring 2017 and summer 2017.

You can complete the FAFSA online, or by returning a paper copy to the federal processor by mail. Paper copies will no longer be available in our office. To request a paper copy students can call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FED-AID. If you complete the FAFSA on paper and mail it in, the form must be received by the federal processor by March 10, 2016 to be considered on-time for the IU Northwest priority deadline. You are strongly encouraged to complete the FAFSA online if possible.
