A loss of income. An empty refrigerator at mealtime. An unexpected financial emergency. A semester left to graduate and not enough funding. A need for money now when you won’t have it until later this month. These situations and many others can happen to anyone. We’re here to help. We know that financial challenges not only impact you and your family, they impact your ability to focus on your education. IU Fort Wayne offers a number of resources that can assist you with your current financial situation.
