The state of Illinois has imposed a deadline date of December 1st, 2019 for returning college students to be eligible for the MAP Grant. File today so you don’t miss out on these free funds if you qualify.

Students will log in with their FSA ID to renew the FAFSA.

Parents of dependent students will use their FSA ID to link their taxes within the FAFSA and sign after the FAFSA is complete.

Be sure to link your 2018 taxes to the IRS right in the FAFSA with use of the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. This will eliminate any need to collect federal tax transcripts from the IRS.

If you need assistance filing your renewal FAFSA, please contact the Office of Student Financial Planning at 309-457-2129 or email at
