Financial Aid


College is a period of time when many critical financial decisions are made.  Because these decisions can have a lifelong impact, students need help making the best choices.  We are dedicated to supporting students and their families with information and resources to financially support their educational goals.  Our site is designed to provide you with a general overview of financial aid programs offered at Itasca and give you guidance in the application process.  We want you to know that we are here to help.  Please feel free to contact us in person, by phone, or e-mail. Our staff contact information is listed below.  We sincerely hope that the information we offer will help you achieve your educational goals at Itasca Community College.    

Now is the time to complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA.  The FAFSA is FREE!

Itasca Community College's school code is 002356.


You and your parent (for dependent students) sign your FAFSA application each with a separate Federal Student Aid (FSA) I.D.  Learn how to create one here.  Make sure both you and your parent (for dependent students) have separate email addresses that can be easily accessed prior to creating the FSA ID.


All students and parents are encouraged to complete the IRS data retrieval process within the FAFSA. If you are selected for verification, you will be required to complete the IRS data retrieval (video) process.  Alternatively, a student or parent can submit a Tax Return Transcript from the IRS.

    • The 2017-2018 FAFSA is now available.  New for 17-18 is the use of PRIOR, PRIOR year tax information. This means you will use your 2015 Federal tax return information again to complete the FAFSA.  This should prevent delays in completing the aid application process since most people will have their tax returns already completed for 2015.  Apply today!
