Find money for college 

CPS hosts financial aid workshops throughout the District to help parents, students, learn about financial aid.

February 15, 2010

For high school seniors getting ready to graduate in June, the time to start thinking about how to pay for college is now.


Financial aid is the funds provided by private organizations, federal, and state government and institutions that are made available to students to help pay for college and other educational programs. Parents and students must fill out the

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for financial aid.


This February, more than 100 financial aid workshops will be open to all seniors and their parents or guardians across the District. Every CPS high school will hold at least one workshop. CPS recommends that all seniors and their parents or guardians participate in a financial aid workshop to find out if they are eligible to receive college funding. 


By February 26, CPS hopes that all graduating seniors will have completed the FAFSA form.
