Financial Aid


A representative from the IUPUI Financial Aid Office is routinely available for counseling in the Dental School and is also reachable through email at dentaid@iupui.edu.  The IUPUI Financial Aid Office website is http://www.iupui.edu/~finaid.

IUSD maintains a small emergency loan fund for students, and there are several scholarships for modest amounts that are granted in the fall semester for eligible students who apply for them.  Since loan and scholarship funds are becoming more limited and the number of financial aid applicants is rapidly increasing, students are encouraged to have their financial affairs in order before enrolling at IUSD.
