Kish College to host FAFSA Information Session October 13

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

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 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 card.
