The FAFSA completion workshop will be offered on Monday January 26th from 9:00am-7:00pm. Parents/students should call in and set up an appointment. Parents will need their: W-2s, federal tax return for 2013 or 2014, social security number, and driver’s license number. It is important to file the FAFSA early, which may require students and parents to use their 2013 tax return as an estimate and then change the figures at a later date after completing their 2014 taxes. Local college financial aid personnel will help walk families through the process of submitting the 2015 FAFSA. The application process should take about 30 minutes. The State of Illinois is encouraging all seniors to complete the FAFSA using last year’s tax information if need be by the middle of February. Keep in mind that money is limited and will be available to eligible families on a first come first serve basis.
The following students were named Illinois State Scholars: Austin Jackson, Maura Karr, Jackie Olson, Bailey Swanson, Clayton Truman and Matt Weeks.
