The Office of Student Financial Planning is responsible for administering financial aid programs at Drake University. Scholarships, grants, loans, work-study programs and other forms of assistance financed by the University, federal and state sources, corporations, foundations, alumni, friends and other sources generate more than $110 million each year for financial assistance for Drake students. Both enrolled and admitted students may confer with counselors in the Office of Student Financial Planning concerning any financial aid questions.
Filing a Free Application for Federal Student aid (FAFSA) ensures consideration for federal, state and institutional financial aid. Award and program eligibility are determined individually for each student based upon numerous factors including the program of study and the level of enrollment (full-time, part-time, etc.).
