Expanding Access through Financial Assistance

American Rescue Plan funding has been designated to support Future Ready Scholarships for UNI @ IACC students who meet income and eligibility criteria. These scholarships will assist in covering the difference between community college tuition and the UNI tuition rate for students pursuing one of the qualifying UNI online degree completion programs.

Future Ready Scholarship Criteria and Awards

Criteria

Students enrolled in a UNI online degree completion program through the UNI @ IACC partnership may be eligible for a Future Ready Scholarship. To qualify, students must have:

  • Earned an associate's degree from an Iowa Community College, or 24+ credits (if enrolled in the BLS or Human Services BA programs)
  • GPA to be admissible to UNI
    • This scholarship will renew automatically by maintaining a GPA of 2.0 or higher.
  • Enroll in at least 3 credits per term
  • Completed the FAFSA demonstrating financial need, as defined by ARP funding guidelines.

*Students must be working toward their first bachelor's degree.

Future Ready Scholarships will be automatically awarded to eligible students. Funding for Future Ready Scholarships is scheduled through December 2026, contingent on available funding.
 

Awards

While the table below shows a potential tuition balance after the Future Ready Scholarship is awarded, completing your FAFSA will allow UNI to potentially reduce--or eliminate--your remaining balance through other forms of financial aid, based on your availability.
