Students can apply for financial assistance with help in paying their tuition and fees with a wide variety of financial assistance programs. Many students receive some type of financial assistance to help fund their education. If you are interested in applying for financial assistance, the Office of Student Financial Aid is here to help you sort through all of the information to make financially responsible decisions.
For many students, the Federal Pell Grant provides a foundation of financial aid to which other types of financial aid may be added.
The Illinois Monetary Award Program (MAP) does not have to repaid. The Illinois MAP Grant is awarded to Illinois residents who attend approved Illinois colleges and demonstrate financial need. MAP Grants are limited based on the number of applicants and funding levels appropriated by the Illinois General Assembly. The Illinois MAP Grant covers Fall and Spring Semesters only. The MAP Grant does not cover Summer Semesters. Please be aware that in light of state funding constraints, reductions to estimated or actual MAP Grants are possible.
