With rising tuition costs, paying for college has become one of the largest hurdles to attending college. Luckily, we're here to help!

FAFSA Ready Iowa creates a pathway for students to apply for financial aid and create a plan for financing their education. The program brings together state leaders, financial aid professionals, community leaders, nonprofit organizers, and high school communities to help more students work towards their dream of a college degree.

FAFSA Ready Iowa is the continuation of the successful Iowa College Goal Sunday program, which has helped more than 7,000 Iowans complete FAFSAs since its inception in 2011. More than 1,000 FAFSA forms were completed through Iowa College Goal Sunday in spring 2016.
