We understand that college isn’t the only thing you have going in your life and sometimes things happen that affect your daily life, including your ability to focus on school. That is why Iowa Western offers services that can help you overcome some of the challenges you may face.

Advising Advising

Your advisor is the expert on campus to help you graduate with your desired degree.  They can make sure you are on track to graduate with the correct coursework and assist in transfer and career planning.  Keep in mind they may not have all of the answers but they are a resource to direct you where to find your answer.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is one option for paying for your education. Last year about 80% of Iowa Western students received financial aid. The first step in the financial aid process is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
