The State of Illinois is requiring all seniors to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), an Illinois Alternative Application or submit a waiver to opt out in order to graduate from a public high school.

Why it is important: The FAFSA is a graduation requirement necessary to earn a diploma.

  • Completing the form helps simplify the financial aid application process for students enrolling in college.

Next Steps: We have several Financial Aid Workshops this year to assist families in understanding the financial aid process and completing this required step.
