The deadline to apply for Iowa’s Last Dollar Program has been extended to August 1.

The program covers tuition for students in more than 20 career and trades programs leading to high-demand jobs in the state.

To qualify for the Last Dollar Program students just need to fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) prior to August 1 and talk to an advisor when enrolling. The state covers the remaining balance beyond the aid for which they are eligible. If students receive no federal or state aid, the program will pay their entire tuition for a certificate, diploma or associate’s degree. 

One of the many great things about the program is that it’s available to both new high school graduates and adult learners (age 20 and older). New high school graduates will be expected to enroll full time in the fall immediately following high school graduation. Adult students can enroll either full or part-time.

The Last Dollar Program is all part of the state’s Future Ready Iowa program. The program is a workforce initiative connecting Iowans to the training and education required for good-paying jobs and careers that improve people’s lives.

The goal of the Last Dollar Program is to increase the number of Iowans with education and training up to a two-year degree in occupations that are in high-demand throughout Iowa. The effort is geared toward getting more Iowans into great jobs, meeting the needs of Iowa employers and growing Iowa’s economy.
