Many students rely on financial aid to attend college and universities, whether they choose Alliant or other institutions of higher education. Alliant International University offers several types of financial aid programs to assist the diverse needs of our graduate and undergraduate students including scholarships, grants, loans and part-time employment. Financial aid and scholarships are provided by federal and state governments, private donors, financial institutions and by the University.

The first step to applying for financial aid is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Alliant Federal Code is 011117.
