Know your options

More than 70 percent of our students receive financial aid. Chances are you qualify for assistance

Welcome to the Office of Student Financial Aid Services!

College is an investment in your future and Financial Aid assists families in making college affordable.  The College of Idaho offers a variety of academic (merit) scholarships ranging from $3,000 to full-tuition.  99% of first year students receive merit awards and over 72% receive some form of need-based assistance.

Eligibility for need-based awards is determined by the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) filed by the student and parents and a completed application for admission to the C of I.  Need-based assistance includes scholarships, grants, loans and work-study.
