FAFSA Workshop

March 1 is the priority deadline for filing the 2014-2015 FAFSA.  If you haven’t completed your FAFSA yet and need assistance, the Financial Aid Office is here to help! We are holding FAFSA workshops this week.  Come in with your family’s 2013 tax returns and W-2’s and a financial aid counselor will help you complete your FAFSA online.  Haven’t filed taxes yet?  Not a problem.  Students can submit the FAFSA with estimates and make corrections later.

Workshop Date(s) and Time(s):

Tuesday, March 18 11:40 AM - 12:50 PM Sullivan Room 253, LSC

For questions or FAFSA help over the phone, just call the Financial Aid Office at (773) 508-7704 during our Office Hours, from Monday – Friday from 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM.
