What if you could train to become a nurse, diesel mechanic or even graphic artist for $0 tuition cost?
Yes, take classes and receive hands-on training from experts in the field—tuition free.
Depending on your personality type, you’d most likely a) jump at the chance or b) think this must be too good to be true…
The good news is with Iowa’s Last Dollar program, 100 percent of your tuition is covered in more than 25 of our most popular degrees, preparing you for in-demand jobs with great starting salaries. There are Certificate, Diploma and Degree options available, so you can choose the path that works best for you.
For students in the qualifying programs, all you have to do is fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by August 1. The state then covers the remaining balance beyond the aid for which you are eligible. Even if you receive no federal or state aid, the program will pay your entire tuition. That’s right, regardless of your personal income situation, you will pay no tuition costs!
One of the many great things about the program is that it’s available to both new high school graduates and adult learners (age 20 and older). New high school graduates will be expected to enroll fulltime in the fall immediately following high school graduation. Adult students can enroll either full or part-time.
The deadline is August 1, so you still have time to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity. To view a full list of qualifying programs, visit eicc.edu/lastdollar
FILE THE FAFSA—GET MONEY FOR COLLEGE!
Each year, the office of Federal Student Aid provides more than 120 billion in grant, work-study and loan funds to help students pay for college.
More than 120 billion dollars are available to help students like you, your daughter or son fund an education! All you need to do to tap into these funds is fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).
The window for filing your 2021–2022 FAFSA is already here. You could begin filing as early as October 1. By filling out the FAFSA, you can access federal grants that do not need to be repaid, federal student loans with low interest rates, and work study programs that provide a convenient way to simultaneously fund your education and build work experience.
Many people miss out on important grants and student loans because they don’t know what’s involved, miss the filing deadline or simply think they won’t qualify. You still have time to file if you begin the process now, and there’s no income cutoff to qualify for federal student aid. It doesn’t matter if you have a low or high income; most people qualify for some type of financial aid. Many factors are taken into account, including your family size and enrollment status.
The form is required of all students filing for financial aid, and by most colleges for their college scholarships.
