Indiana College Loans

The State Student Assistance Commission of Indiana is one of the United States top-ranked state financial aid agencies. The SSACI's mission is to make college affordable to need-based students, allow students collegiate choices by offering financial awards, and increasing college preparation by giving additional grants to students graduating from high school with Core 40 and Academic Honors Diplomas.

The SSACI also strives to promote awareness of Indiana financial assistance programs by providing counselor workshops, financial aid planning meetings, college fairs and other community and statewide events.

As with Federal Student Aid, the SSACI's award program revolves around the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Indiana students seeking assistance from the state must first fill out the FAFSA. The FAFSA can be filed via paper form or online. Applications filed through the federal Web site are generally processed faster and yield quicker award results.

There are other student aid programs offered outside of the SSACI that students may need to consider in order to cover all of their collegiate expenses. These options include the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Stafford Loan, and Indiana student loan.

Students who exhaust their scholarship and U.S. Department of Education student aid options can also turn to outside lenders for private student loans.

Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant Program supplies financial backing to undergraduate students. Eligibility is determined through the use of formulas and is based on the students financial need as depicted via the FAFSA.

Federal Stafford Loan
A federal loan taken out by the student, a Federal Stafford Loan can be used to pay for direct educational costs that are not covered by grants. In order to be eligible for a loan, the borrower has to be enrolled at least half-time and indicate an interest in the loan program on his or her FAFSA.
