FAFSA Night on Oct. 22
The College Career Center will hold its annual Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Completion Night from 4-7 p.m, via Zoom on Thursday, Oct. 22.
Families interested in attending are asked to make an appointment prior to Oct. 22 by calling Michele Doczi at 847-415-4517, or via email by firstname.lastname@example.org. If families need an interpreter, please reach out by Oct. 15. Zoom links will be provided once registration has been received. The FAFSA Workshop will utilize Zoom and the breakout room feature to allow families private conversations directly with representatives from the Illinois Student Assistance Commission who are trained in the specific details of the FAFSA.
Families are strongly encouraged to create their Federal Student Aid identification numbers prior to the appointment and begin completing the FAFSA form. A separate FSA ID is required for a parent and for the student. Families can get started by creating a Federal Student Aid ID and reviewing the steps for filling out a FAFSA form.
There is now a state-mandated graduation requirement related to the completion of the FAFSA, an alternative application or completion of a FAFSA non-participation form.
Remembering a Fellow Patriot
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the loss of senior student Charnice Fisher. Charnice passed away on Tuesday afternoon after a courageous battle with cancer. Charnice was passionate about dance and fashion and cherished the shopping spree she was able to participate in through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. We know Charnice was a cherished member of our Patriot family and that she will be sorely missed. Our deepest sympathies go out to her loved ones during this difficult time. This is very sad and difficult information to process, and we know that grief affects each of us differently. If you are a student in need of counseling support, please reach out to your Student Support Team.
