Joliet West High School will host a financial aid presentation and FAFSA workshop to inform families about ways to help afford college.


The Financial Aid Process Presentation will be at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 28 in the Joliet West Auditorium located at 401 N. Larkin Avenue in Joliet. The presentation will cover the many forms of financial aid available to students such as grants, scholarships, work study and loans and how to apply for each.


The FAFSA Completion Workshop will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 4 in the Joliet West Computer Labs. The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is a service of the U.S. Department of Education that distributes funds to college students through grants, loans, and work study every year. The free application is required by some colleges prior to students’ enrollment.


The workshop will provide families the opportunity to complete the FAFSA with assistance from staff. Participants must sign up for the workshop. To fill out the FAFSA, applicants must bring their social security number, records of income such as tax forms, information about assets like savings and stock information, a driver’s license, proof of date of birth, month and year of marriage, separation, divorce, or other change of marital status, and Alien Registration Number if the student is not a U.S. citizen. Email Christine Ebenroth at cebenroth@jths.org to reserve a spot.
