The financial aid office is very helpful, they help with anything that is unclear concerning my financial aid. The money always comes on time before my classes start. I don't really have any delay and the process is very smooth and clear cut.
If there are any minor changes to your status, like marriage, they get weird and make you jump through more hoops than you should really need to. And if you talk to a secretary they are kind of stupid about the whole process.
They take awhile to answer emails and to tell me what paperwork and things I need to do because I transferred from another college.
They barely give financial aid. It sounds cheap but it isn't. I wasn't granted any scholarships and the aid is distributed only a little at a time, leaving a 2K-3K bill each month. My parents had to take out a very high interest loan in order to ensure that I would have everything paid for so that I could sign up for classes.
Financial aid from IUSB is the absolute worst. On FAFSA, it might say that my parents make enough to pay for only my college, but that is not true whatsoever. I have an older brother who goes to IUSB as well and my parents struggle as it is just paying for bills or catching up on bills plus having to pay for college on top of that. I am paying for my own college because I feel bad for my parents so I went to a financial officer and she explained to me that I make too much for financial aid. I work part-time all year round and don't even make $12,000 a year so I was really frustrated with the financial officer. IUSB only gave me one scholarship, which covers only $250 a semester, which is not a lot. I have a cumulative of a 3.46 and I think I deserve more scholarships from IUSB since I have such a high GPA compared to most students here.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
