Financial Aid Workshops 2013


How can I get my hands on some cash for college?
You'll need to complete the FREE application for Federal Student Aid ( FAFSA) at The workshop is designed to provide hands-on instruction on how to navigate through the FAFSA on the Web.

What information do I need to bring to complete my FAFSA?
A copy of both your and your parent's 2012 tax forms, your driver's license or state ID & Social Security card. If you have not completed your tax forms, bring your 2012 W-2 forms. Information about assets such as savings, certificates of deposit, stock options, bonds; and investment real estate, business and farm.

Who can help?
We can! The Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC), along with local financial aid experts, and ISAC-trained volunteers will be available to assist you in completing and submitting your application via computer.
