Paying for college

A top-quality education doesn’t have to come with a shocking sticker price. Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can open up access to grants, loans and work-study programs for those who qualify. Email or call 217-786-2237 to request a FAFSA Zoom Completion Call to get personalized support in completing your FAFSA.
