COLLEGE AND CAREERS

FAFSA, Class of 2021:

The 2021-2022 FAFSA application is now open!  Current senior students who will be attending a college/university in the Fall of 2021 will need to complete the 2021-2022 FAFSA application and the parent/guardian will need to upload their 2019 taxes.  To start the FAFSA, both the student and at least one parent/guardian will need to first create an FSA ID (Click Here).  Once both individuals have created an FSA ID account, the student can then start the FAFSA (Click Here) by choosing "I am the student".  This year, the FAFSA is a graduation requirement for the Class of 2021.  For those families who would like to opt-out of completing the FAFSA, please email Mr. Tanner (tanneran@u4sd.org).  Mr. Tanner will then email the opt-out document to the family. 

If you are an Illinois student who is not eligible for federal financial aid (and do not file the FAFSA), you may apply for the MAP grant using the online Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid, which is patterned after the FAFSA.  For more information, visit the Retention of Illinois Students & Equity (RISE) Act page of this website, and talk with Mr. Tanner or the financial aid office at your college or university."

For questions and/or concerns, please email Mr. Tanner at tanneran@u4sd.org.

Para iniciar el llenado de la solicitud  FAFSA, tanto el estudiante como al menos uno de los padres / tutores deberán crear primero un FSA ID ( haga clic aquí). Una vez que ambas personas hayan creado el FSA ID, el estudiante puede iniciar el llenado de la solicitud FAFSA ( haga clic aquí) eligiendo "Yo soy el estudiante".  Este año, la solicitud FAFSA es un requisito de graduación para la promoción del 2021. Para aquellas familias que deseen optar por no completar el llenado de la solicitud  FAFSA, envíe un correo electrónico al Sr. Tanner (tanneran@u4sd.org).  El Sr. Tanner le enviará de regreso por correo electrónico el documento de exclusión voluntaria a la familia. 

Si usted es un estudiante de Illinois que no es elegible para recibir ayuda financiera federal (y no presenta la solicitud FAFSA), puede solicitar una beca a MAP utilizando la Solicitud alternativa de ayuda financiera de Illinois en línea, que sigue el modelo de la FAFSA.  Para obtener más información, visite el (haga clic aquí) Retention of Illinois Students & Equity (RISE) Act y la Solicitud Alternativa de Ayuda Financiera de Illinois de este sitio web y hable con el Sr. Tanner o con la oficina de ayuda financiera de su colegio o universidad.
