Apply for Financial Aid

The FAFSA will open in December 2023; send your FAFSA to Illinois College as soon as possible.

To be considered for financial aid from Illinois College and for state and federal programs, students must complete the FAFSA each year, which requires the following from students and parents:

  • Federal Student Aid (FSA) User ID and password for both the student and a parent. For information on how to create or retrieve an FSA ID, click here.
  • For the 2024-2025 FAFSA, use 2022 Federal Income and Tax information for both the student and parent(s). You will not update this information, even after completing 2023 taxes.
