Joliet Junior College will hold a series of free FAFSA and Scholarship Workshops in February and March, all open to the community.
The completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is necessary to apply for all forms of government financial aid which students will have the opportunity to learn more about during the workshop.
There will also be professional assistance available for the online application process. No appointment is necessary and English/Spanish translators will be available. To file a FAFSA, copies of 2011 federal income tax forms, copies of W-2s, and all other income documentation are required.
Those who attend will also learn about various scholarships available to JJC students. For JJC students, there is over $700,000 in available scholarships from the JJC Foundation and other institutional sources.
