Apply for Financial Assistance

Education is an investment in your future and we know that the investment can be expensive. But there is good news: Each year, the U.S. Department of Education's Federal Student Aid Office provides more than $120 billion in assistance to millions of students. This aid can be used to pay for tuition and fees, books, and supplies.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid, FAFSA

This is the first step in applying for financial assistance in the form of federal and state grants, loans, work study and *scholarships.  Students who are looking for assistance with completing the FAFSA can sign up for a 30 minute one-on-one Virtual FAFSA Completion Session 

*Not all scholarships will require the FAFSA to be completed. Learn more about scholarship opportunities.

Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid

The Retention of Illinois Students & Equity (RISE) Act allows eligible undocumented students and transgender students who are disqualified from federal financial aid for failure to register for selective service to apply for all forms of state financial aid. The Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid provides a pathway for these qualified students to apply for Monetary Award Program (MAP) grants.
