Costs & Financial Aid

  • Important Announcement


    As of this date, Illinois Monetary Award Program (MAP) for 2016-2017 has not yet been approved.

    At this time all MAP grant awards have been placed on hold.

    MAP funds will not be available until a state budget is approved.

    Updates can be found on the Illinois Student Assistance Commission’s website.

    Important Deadlines


    Priority deadline for students to turn in required paperwork to be considered for an EARLY Fall 2017 Book voucher is June 12th

    Final deadline for Fall 2017 book voucher is July 10th

    You must be eligible to receive the book voucher. Any paperwork received after July 10, 2017 will NOT be issued a book voucher.

    2017 - 2018 MAP grants


    Due to the anticipation of limited funding, ISAC is suspending the announcement of 2017-2018 MAP grants to all students whose initial 2017-2018 FAFSA is received by the federal processor on or after January 15, 2017.

    FAFSAs received on or after January 15 will be placed in a hold status and will not be released for MAP award processing unless additional funding becomes available.

    Should additional 2017-2018 funding become available and only if you are eligible will an estimated MAP grant appear on your financial aid award letter.


    Changes for the 2017-2018 FAFSA

    You may start filing your 2017-2018 FAFSA beginning October 1, 2016 rather than January 1, 2017.

    This earlier date will be a permanent change that will allow you to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1st every year. The 2017-2018 FAFSA will report you and your parent(s) if applicable 2015 income tax information rather than your 2016 tax information.

    The Financial Aid Office will offer workshops to assist you in completing your 2017-2018 FAFSA.
