IBA Partners With ICAN to Provide Financial Aid Training

The Iowa Bankers Association has partnered with ICAN, a nonprofit, educational organization, to bring in-depth financial aid training to bank personnel statewide. For more than 20 years, ICAN has been dedicated to empowering Iowans to achieve lifelong success through education and training. The Financial Aid/FAFSA Training is designed specifically for Iowa banks, providing the tools needed to offer professional and accurate advice to customers looking to maximize funding for college. This training will establish banks as an essential partner with families as they explore ways to fund education and training after high school. The half-day training starts with understanding basic financial aid terminology and progresses into easy-to-understand segments, including:

  • Defining types of financial aid.
  • Understanding financial aid timelines.
  • Understanding how to determine financial need.
  • How to complete the FAFSA (federal form to determine eligibility for aid).
  • How to interpret financial aid award packages.
  • Funding options for students and parents.
  • How to talk to students and parents about college costs.
  • Understanding student loans.

Three training will be offered in a virtual format through Zoom on Sept. 16, 23 and 30. The cost of the training is $35 per participant. Learn more or register.
