Outreach Activities Calendar

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 outreach events, including but not limited to college fairs, financial aid presentations, financial aid application completion workshops, and college admission workshops.

Currently, all in-person college planning and financial aid presentations have been postponed consistent with guidelines during the Coronavirus outbreak. However, ISAC is providing weekly Facebook Live events on a variety of college planning and financial aid topics. See the schedule below and visit us on Facebook @ILStudentAssistance.

In addition, our ISACorps are always available to work with students and families via email or phone, providing college planning assistance, as well as assistance in completing the FAFSA or the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid. ISACorps members can be located using the Search by ZIP Code tool on the ISAC Student Portal: studentportal.isac.org/isacorps.

You can also text any college planning or financial aid questions to an ISAC expert through the ISAC College Q&A text messaging service. It’s fee and easy to sign up. Learn more at isac.org/collegeqa.

ISAC Facebook Live Event Schedule: Note all events are on Tuesdays at 10 am Central Time
