Iowa College Student Aid Commission
Established in 1963 by the Iowa General Assembly, the Iowa College Student Aid Commission serves as Iowa's higher education student financial aid agency. The Commission assists Iowa students and families as they plan, prepare and pay for education beyond high school by:

* Providing scholarships and grants that help Iowa students and families afford higher education;
* Providing services and resources to increase college preparedness and access;
* Promoting financial literacy and debt management;
* Facilitating students' planning for careers after graduation; and
* Helping student loan borrowers avoid the serious consequences of default.

Through these efforts, the Iowa College Student Aid Commission seeks to realize its vision that all Iowans can achieve education beyond high school. The Higher Education Data Center provides further details concerning the work of the Commission, key aspects of higher education in Iowa, and indicators of the need for continued commitment to the future of higher education in our state.

Additionally, each year the Iowa College Student Aid Commission prepares an Annual Report for the Iowa General Assembly, and provides agency performance, strategy and goal information to the public through Results Iowa.
