To apply for federal student aid, such as federal grants, work-study, and loans, you need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on their website: FAFSA
As of 2021 this will be a state of Illinois graduation requirement. For students to get the most aid possible it is important to apply early. Each year FAFSA opens October 1. In addition to the FAFSA this website has resources about different types of aid, budgeting, and preparing core college.
