Outreach Activities Calendar

Last updated on December 7, 2018

The primary goal of ISAC's outreach efforts is to help families navigate the steps of the college admission and financial aid processes. We offer or participate in a number of college fairs, financial aid nights and FAFSA® completion workshops, and college admission workshops. Check out the list of events in Illinois for the one nearest you. All events listed are open to the public. If you don’t see an event in your area and would like assistance from an ISACorps member with the college-going or financial aid process, find your local representative here.

If you are planning to attend a FAFSA Completion Workshop, check out What to Bring to a FAFSA® Completion Workshop before you go!

All events in Illinois, unless otherwise indicated.  

If you are a counselor or at an organization that would like additional information on how we can assist you with a college application or financial aid event, please complete a Request for ISAC Outreach Activities Form or send us an e-mail to isac.outreach@illinois.gov.
