Gift aid does not need to be earned (like work study) or repaid (like loans).  Gift aid examples include scholarships, grants to help students with financial need, and fee remissions for IU employees.  The figures prior to 2012-13 include aid for students who were enrolled on one of their four campus census dates, or who completed a degree during the fiscal year 2012-13.  Beginning in 2012-13, the figures include aid for students who were enrolled at fall, spring or summer census; enrolled for the fall, spring or summer as of a final-year snapshot; or were conferred an IU degree between September 1 and August 31 for the indicated aid year.  All figures include both degree-seeking and non-degree students with gift aid.

5 Due to the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), most federal veterans education benefits are no longer entered on students' records, effective fall 2009.  As a result, beginning in 2009-10 the federal gift aid total excludes some veterans benefits that were reported in previous years, while including new Post-9-11 benefit programs.  In addition, significant federal gift aid for graduate students is funded from short-term sponsored research funds from federal agencies.  Those resources vary considerably from one year to the next.
