About Iowa Student Loan

Iowa Student Loan is all about your success.

Established in 1979 as a private, nonprofit corporation, Iowa Student Loan helps Iowa students and families obtain the resources necessary to succeed in postsecondary education. To date, we have helped more than 392,500 students pay for college.

Iowa Student Loan provides scholarships and programs for Iowa families, offers private student loans for students who have exhausted other sources of aid, and reinvests funds in programs to benefit students and borrowers.

Based in West Des Moines, we are self-funded and self-capitalized and are governed by a board of directors appointed by the governor of Iowa. For nearly 40 years, we have worked to support the local economy by maintaining and growing jobs and providing competitive salaries and benefits. Along with our subsidiary, we employ more than 200 people and manage $2.6 billion in student loans.
