Completing your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and the Knox Financial Aid Application will get you on your way to applying for all financial assistance -- grants, work study, educational loans, and more. The sooner you apply, the better.
Step #1: Complete your FAFSA by February 1, or as soon as possible thereafter
Step #2: Complete the Knox Financial Aid Application(PDF)
Monetary Award Program (MAP) grants are awarded until State of Illinois funds are depleted. Funds were exhausted by late February in previous years, so be sure to file your FAFSA as soon as possible. Knox cannot make up the shortfall if you are eligible for the grant but file your FAFSA too late to receive it.
If your family anticipates a reduction in income, has incurred high medical or dental expenses, pays private elementary or high school tuition for siblings, makes educational debt payments, or has other unique circumstances, you may wish to complete a Special Circumstances Form (PDF) after you file your FAFSA.
