College Planning Services
Iowa Student Loan's largest annual community reinvestment is its contribution to the statewide college planning services offered by the independently governed Iowa College Access Network (ICAN). Our lead support, along with that of other sponsors, allows ICAN staff located at ten regional centers across the state to offer an array of top-notch college planning services to Iowa students and families at no cost.
Services offered include one-on-one personalized advising sessions that address career exploration and planning, college and scholarship applications, completion of the FAFSA financial aid form, college cost comparisons and financing options, among other topics.
Additionally, the ICAN staff makes community presentations at local high schools and community sites, covering numerous college and career planning topics as well as providing access to other college planning resources. ICAN staff visits essentially every Iowa high school at least once each academic year and operates out of regional centers in Ankeny, Coralville, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Hiawatha, Orange City, Sioux City and Waterloo.
