As of October 1st, the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is available to complete to be considered for need-based grant and federal student loans for the 2021-2022 academic year. Complete the FAFSA at FAFSA.ed.gov or download the myStudentAid app. Residents of Illinois should complete the FAFSA as soon as possible to be considered for the Illinois MAP grant (up to $4,869/year). MAP grants are distributed to eligible students according to the FAFSA filing date, until funds are depleted.
Please complete your FAFSA sooner rather than later. If you need help completing the application, contact the financial Aid Office at 708-239-4755.
