Administrative Rules Review

The Rules Docket published on this website is the official docket for Iowa College Aid. Executive Order Number Nine, signed by Governor Tom Vilsack on September 14, 1999, requires each agency of the Executive Branch of Iowa government to maintain a rulemaking docket and to publish the docket on the agency's website for public review.

The public is invited to comment on any Administrative Rule under Iowa College Aid's authority. Items that appear on our Rulemaking Docket specify a deadline by which comments must be received. Persons wishing to comment may do so by emailing Iowa College Aid's Agency Rules Administrator, Todd Brown.
