Division of Student Financial Aid


About Us

The State Student Assistance Commission of Indiana (SSACI) is one of the top-rated state financial
aid agencies in the country. Since 1965, our mission has been to make college affordable through need-based grants and to allow choice by granting awards to those attending public, independent
and proprietary colleges. SSACI attempts to increase college preparation through its Twenty-first Century Scholar program and by giving increased grant amounts to those graduating from high school with Academic or Technical Honors Diplomas.

SSACI accomplishes this mission with:

  • Grant and Scholarship Programs for full-time and part-time college students;
  • Early intervention programs for Twenty-first Century Scholars;
  • Research to better understand the needs of Hoosier students and families; and
  • Technology to make the delivery of awards as simple as possible for students and colleges.

In addition to making awards, SSACI promotes awareness of Indiana financial assistance programs through its web site, guidance counselor workshops, community forums, and other statewide events such as College Goal Sunday.

Student Accounts

SSACI has a self-service website, called eStudent, for students who have filed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as residents of Indiana. The eStudent site allows students to view their state grant award, grant history, as well as alerts students to any issues with the FAFSA that could eliminate state aid eligibility. Please visit for more information.
