The Joliet Central High School Guidance Office will host three events this October open to Central students and their families to learn about college financial aid.
Please save the date for the following events:
- Tuesday, October 1: A Financial Aid Night will be held at 6:00pm in the Joliet Central Multipurpose Room. Families can join us for an informational session on college financial aid. This will be presented by DePaul University.
- Tuesday, October 15: A FAFSA Completion Workshop will be held at 6:00pm in the Joliet Central Computer Lab Rooms 259 & 261. Families can come in and receive assistance completing and submitting their FAFSA. Experts will be available to assist in completing the document. We will also have experts who speak Spanish.
- Wednesday, October 16: The JJC College Fair will begin at 5:30 PM at the JJC Main Campus. This is a great opportunity to visit a local college fair. JJC is expecting over 120 colleges. The Central Guidance Office will also host a pre-planning workshop prior to the fair to help prepare them for speaking with college representatives at the fair. JCHS will also provide transportation to and from the fair with a signed permission slip. The form may be picked up in the Guidance Office.
Additional resources include the Joliet Central Guidance webpage, the Federal Student Aid Webpage, the ISAC webpage, and the scholarship website Fastweb. If you have questions, please contact your student’s school counselor for additional information.
