Financial Assistance is available to qualified students at our traditional campus and to adult students taking undergraduate and graduate coursework in our adult learning and professional studies programs at our Graduate & Professional Studies locations. All students are encouraged to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is processed by the U.S. Department of Education. You may request to have your FAFSA results, sent to BVU. Even if you are currently unsure if you will attend, completing this free application will help determine your financial need.
FAFSA website: www.fafsa.ed.gov
BVU's institution code: 001847
Grants are funds that do not have to be repaid. They are usually awarded on the basis of financial need.
Phi Theta Kappa scholarships are now available to qualified students. Get more information and download the scholarship application. Phi Theta Kappa transfer scholarships are also available for those who qualify.
Other scholarships for students working toward their bachelor’s degree completion or for working adults may be available at some locations. Please contact us about availability and requirements.
Loans are made to students at low interest rates and must be repaid, but generally payments are not due until the student has completed his or her education or ceases at least half-time enrollment.
Tuition Reimbursements are available through many area employers. Many companies will pay part or all of an employee's educational costs. Check with your company's benefits representative to see if you qualify. All tuition reimbursement benefits must be reported to the Office of Financial Assistance.
All programs are approved for the G.I. Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program.
In addition to the above information, our staff is happy to answer any questions you have about applying for financial aid. If you are in need of financial assistance, such as college scholarships in Iowa or scholarships for adults returning to college, please contact us to receive more information about how affordable our programs can be.
