American Indian College requires ALL students to complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Applications should be completed on the FAFSA Web Page.
When entering the college of your choice American Indian College’s Federal School Code is 015550.
Institutional grants and scholarships vary in amount and are based on need, academic achievement, and several other factors that determine your eligibility for specific awards. Unless otherwise indicated, a committee appointed by the President will administer these grants and scholarships. AIC reserves the right to adjust any institutional awards whenever the award, combined with other financial aid exceeds the total cost of education or when a recipient no longer qualifies for the award academically, socially, or for other reasons determined by the College. All institutional grant and scholarship recipients must be enrolled full-time (taking at least 12 credit hours) and live in campus housing unless they are married, have dependents, and/or live with their parents.
Students will only be awarded qualifying institutional scholarships after all other financial aid awards have been applied, excluding student loans. If the student still has an outstanding balance after Pell Grant, FSEOG, Tribal Scholarships, other miscellaneous scholarships, the student must make timely payments or participate in work study on campus. At the end of each semester, once the student has met all other requirements, and made effort to pay remaining balance through payments or work study, the student will be awarded the qualifying scholarship(s) up to the remaining balance owed.
*Students must fulfill all Satisfactory Progress requirements to be initially eligible and to maintain eligibility for institutional grants and scholarships.
In all cases institutional grants and scholarships will be applied before federal loans. Need-based institutional grants are awarded at various times of the year to help deserving students avoid the need for loans.

The amount of this grant varies depending on numerous considerations as determined by the AIC Financial Aid Committee, including student deportment, academic progress, and special circumstances that impact a student’s need. Funds are limited based on the amount available for Student Assistance purposes at any given time but in a typical year all students with demonstrated need receive some need-based funds.
AIC provides several donor scholarships of varying amounts that are awarded to students who have been enrolled for at least two semesters.
