NEWS

POSSIBLE ELIMINATION OF WORK STUDY: As a result of the State of Iowa budget debates, the 2001-02 Iowa Work Study program has been targeted for elimination which would impact all colleges and universities in Iowa. This means that there may be a drastic reduction to the total work study fundings at UNI for 2001-02. Due to the potential loss of Iowa Work Study funds, students who wish to be considered for 2001-02 work study should have already applied for financial aid. Students who have not applied are encourged to complete the 2001-02 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible. It is very likely that many students who received work study as part of their 2000-01 award package may not receive it during 2001-02. If you have questions on how to complete and submit a FAFSA, please feel free to contact the Financial Aid / Student Employment Office at 116 GIL, 273-2700.
