Financial Aid

The 2022-2023 FAFSA Application and Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid opens on October 1, 2021!!! All members of the class of 2022 are REQUIRED by state law to complete a financial aid application if eligible. Please verify your eligibility with a member of the counseling or college and career team prior to completing a financial aid application.

All Kelly seniors are required to apply for financial aid if eligible as a result of HB 2719, a law signed by Governor JB Pritzker. This would be either the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid (Alternative App). The vast majority of Kelly families qualify for some sort of financial aid and our staff is here to help navigating these complicated applications.
