The Financial Aid Office staff is committed to helping you identify your options for paying for college as well as guiding you through the process.

First we’d like to start with giving you a guide to the financial aid process. This helpful checklist will lay out each step you need to take to apply for financial aid. It includes deadlines you need to be aware of and the most important information, simplified.

Next, we have important information you need to be aware of. We’ll keep you updated on any new developments or requirements for each year’s financial aid.

  • Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid is available for Illinois residents who are unable to complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA due to being an undocumented or transgendered individual.
