Federal Financial Aid
Students interested in federal financial aid must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Include federal school code 001809 under School Selection. IU Bloomington offers additional financial support information, including on how to apply for a Graduate PLUS loan.
If you have questions about federal student loans for graduate students, please visit the Office of Student Financial Assistance for additional information.
Employer Tuition Assistance
Students may have their tuition billed to a third-party sponsor, such as their employer. Third parties cannot be billed directly if payment is conditional (contingent on grades, for example). Check with your employer about company-sponsored tuition benefits. Learn more about third-party sponsors and billing on the IU Student Central website.

International Student Aid
International students are ineligible for federal student loans but still have opportunities to receive financial assistance. Be open-minded about your funding search and look beyond IU. Such sources of support may include aid from your home country, U.S. federal aid (other than federal student loans), nongovernmental sources, and departmental aid.
Explore these options through IU’s Office of International Services.
