Financial Aid Options
Faith was named one of the Top 100 Best Colleges for the Money in 2019 by College Factual! We understand that cost is a huge factor in your college decision. We strive to keep our costs affordable to make it as easy as possible for you to experience the life-changing college experience at Faith.
Scholarships & Institutional Aid
100% of our campus students receive financial aid, and the average financial aid package is $11,380. See available scholarships that you may qualify for.
Federal & State Financial Aid Options
In addition to our generous scholarships and institutional aid packages, students can qualify for several federal and state grants and aid.
Federal Pell Grant
Pell grants are often the first resource for college students. These grants are determined by your FAFSA. A Pell grant currently offers students up to $6,195, based on a student’s financial eligibility. Those with the greatest financial need will receive the maximum award.
Residents of Iowa have the opportunity to receive thousands of dollars in grants and scholarships from the state. For more information about merit and need-based college financial aid, visit the Iowa College Aid website.

We realize that loans are often a necessary part of the college experience. Faith will not certify a loan unless a FAFSA online interview has been completed. It is important to remember that FAFSA is not an application for a loan. It is also important to research loans very carefully. We would encourage you to look for banks and lenders who offer good interest rates.
Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans are available. Students must complete the FAFSA to be eligible for a loan. If you wish to take out a loan, contact the Financial Aid Office for the form needed.
Faith Baptist Bible College does not provide a preferred lender or a historical lender list. We encourage students to take advantage of all sources of federal, state, and institutional aid, before turning to private student loans. A private student loan may also be referred to as an alternative student loan.
In the event that additional aid is needed beyond what federal, state, or institutional aid can provide, alternative student loans are available to students. Choosing a lender is an important financial decision. We encourage students to extensively research their private loan lending options to identify the lender whose terms and conditions best meet their needs.
Faith does not endorse any specific lender. Students complete an application directly with the lender of their choice, the application may be subject to credit approval. If you choose to take out an alternative student loan, please notify the financial aid office.
