We thank College of DuPage for their partnership and collaboration in bringing the symposium to their campus.

The FAFSA Symposium provides an opportunity for schools to share best practices for supporting students in completing the FAFSA and the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid.


The symposium is offered at no cost to attendees! Registration is now open through September 1, 2022. The symposium is open to all college access professionals but directly aimed towards school counselors, college & career staff, and anyone who provides direct support to students on the financial aid process. Advance registration is required; walk-in registrations are not guaranteed. Visit the FAFSA Symposium page to register and for more information.
