The Kishwaukee College Financial Aid Office will host a free, in-person workshop demonstrating
how to file the 2023-2024 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The event
is open to local students and families and will take place 4-6 pm Thursday, Oct. 13,
at Kishwaukee College. Those who cannot attend the event can set up an appointment
with a Kish Financial Aid team member to complete the FAFSA by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The FAFSA is the building block for all financial aid packaging for college students
across the U.S. Filing the FAFSA is the first step in determining what federal or
state financial aid a student is eligible for, including grants and loans. The 2023-2024
FAFSA application period opens Saturday, Oct. 1, and will be used to determine financial
aid for the academic year beginning Fall 2023.
The in-person FAFSA Information Session or one-on-one appointments are open to all
area students and their parents and will guide them through the FAFSA submission process
with an opportunity to ask questions to Kish Financial Aid team members.
In preparation for the session or a one-on-one appointment, people filing FAFSA for
the first time should visit http://fsaid.ed.gov/ to create a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID), which will be required to submit the
FAFSA electronically. For dependent students, at least one parent will also need to
complete the FSA ID. Students and parents should have their 2021 tax return, income
information, social security numbers and driver’s license/state ID or alien registration
To register for the upcoming in-person FAFSA Information Session or schedule a one-on-one
appointment, contact Kish’s Financial Aid Office at email@example.com. For additional information on Financial Aid at Kish, visit www.kish.edu/financialaid.
