New Graduation Requirement

October 15, 2020

Beginning with the 2020-21 academic year, P. A. 101-180 now requires all Illinois public high school seniors to complete either the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid (Alternative Application) or a FAFSA Nonparticipation Form as a prerequisite to receiving a high school diploma.

The FAFSA or the Alternative Application are now available to complete at the following website: www.fafsa.gov. The FAFSA Nonparticipation Form is available at the bottom of this page. Completing the FAFSA allows a student to be eligible for grants, loans, and scholarships to pay for training/education after high school. If you would like help in completing the FAFSA, ISAC staff have set up several workshops to help students and their families complete the FAFSA. The different workshops are listed below along with Register Now links. Also, two helpful documents are attached to this website below.

Once you have completed the FAFSA or the Alternative Application please fill out the Google Form below. If you fill out the FAFSA Nonparticipation Form instead then you will need to email Mr. Holthaus the completed FAFSA Nonparticipation Form. Mr. Holthaus' email address is troy.holthaus@mfschools.net.

2020 Virtual Financial Aid Application Completion Workshops

During these free online workshops, ISAC staff will provide assistance to those individuals wishing to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid.

You will be able to ask questions privately via the chat tool as you complete the FAFSA or the Alternative Application.

All events are free but registration is required.
