File your FAFSA ASAP!!!

Recently the Illinois Student Assistance Commission announced that your 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be submitted by Wednesday, December 21, 2016 to ensure consideration for the State of Illinois Monetary Award Program (MAP) Grant. If you are a resident of Illinois, I highly encourage you to file your FAFSA by this deadline in order to be considered for all financial aid programs that you qualify for!

If you have not already listed Illinois as a recipient of your FAFSA our school code is 001775.

If you have any questions about this information, please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid.


Please note that comments close after 90 days.

Hi John,
Whether or not you qualify for most financial aid is dependent on your FAFSA. If you qualify to be able to file a FAFSA then I would recommend doing so ASAP after October 1 of your senior year of high school. That way you ensure that you’re considered for all financial aid programs that you qualify for.

If you have questions regarding merit-based scholarships then I would refer to this link here:
