What if I want my directory information held?
       Iowa Central will provide a form to be completed by students who want their directory information
       held.  The “Nondisclosure of Directory Information” form must be completed and submitted to the
       Registrar’s Office by the end of the first 10 class days of the term.  The “Nondisclosure of Directory
       Information” will be in effect until the student requests in writing that it be revoked.  Students
       requesting non-disclosure understand that their name will not appear in the graduation program,
       in sports bulletins, music & theater brochures, honor rolls, home town papers, etc. This form can be
       obtained at the Registrar’s Office.
       Can I allow others access to my non-directory information?
       Iowa Central also provides a form to be completed by students that want their non-directory information
       released to others.  The “Release of Confidential Information” form is often completed by students to
       give permission for Iowa Central to speak to their parents regarding, financial aid information, billing
       information, grades, GPA, class schedules, class attendance, housing information, health information,
       veteran’s information and academic accommodation information. This form is available to students
       via WebAdvisor or a paper copy can be picked up at the Registrar’s Office and is good for one year,
       so it must be completed each year.

       Financial Aid
       Director, Financial Aid - Ext. 1034
       The primary purpose of a Financial Aid program is to provide assistance for students who otherwise
       might find it difficult or impossible to attend College. If you are experiencing difficulty due to finances,
       you are encouraged to visit the Financial Aid Office to determine if assistance may be available.
       Please do not withdraw from College for financial reasons without first having consulted with the
       Financial Aid staff.
       Caring staff are available to answer questions. Feel free to stop in or to call for assistance with your
       financial aid needs. Please understand that any and all staff in the Enrollment Management and
       Student Development Department will work to answer your questions or assist you in any way. We
       are here to serve you!
       Applications for Federal Student Aid take approximately three to four weeks for the Central Processing
       Center to process by mail and one to two weeks online. Filing early for financial aid benefits students
       by informing them of the assistance they will receive before classes begin.
       It is necessary to apply for Financial Aid each year. Late filing of your application for Financial Aid may
       result in delay in receiving funds prior to classes beginning or losing your opportunity of receiving some
       aid. You may file for the 2016-2017 year after January 1, 2016, and you may file for the 2017-2018 year
       after October 1, 2016. We have a priority deadline of March 1st for filing your FAFSA.
       Your financial aid is awarded to you contingent on you attending and successfully completing your
       coursework. Therefore, if you withdraw or do not attend, you may be required to repay part of your
       financial aid to the College or the Department of Education. This policy applies to recipients who are
       receiving Title IV funds which consist of Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG, and Direct Loans. You may
       obtain information on this policy from the Financial Aid Office.
       For information on our Return of Title IV Funds Policy (R2T4) policy, visit www.iowacentral.edu/

       Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy
       Satisfactory Academic Progress
       Iowa Central Community College is required to establish academic progress standards for students
       who are federal and state financial aid applicants or recipients. This policy ensures that any student who
       receives or applies for financial aid is making progress toward a degree. The student’s total academic
       history is monitored regardless of whether he/she has previously received financial aid.
