Just a reminder -- AFTER OCTOBER 1, 2018 -- Seniors will want to start the process of filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for financial assistance in paying for college. Most colleges and universities will also use this information to determine how much financial aid they can give you. The FAFSA web site is www.fafsa.ed.gov. The Illinois Student Assistance Commission also offers resources to help with the FAFSA and financial aid at their web site http://www.isac.org/students/before-college/financial-aid-planning/index.html. Another helpful resource is available on LendEDU's web site https://lendedu.com/blog/illinois-scholarships-grants-and-student-loans/.
