Federal & State Grants

The Federal Pell Grant is distributed by the federal government to assist students with the greatest financial need. Eligibility is determined based upon a student’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Learn more about federal grants.

Illinois residents may be eligible for additional aid through the Illinois Monetary Award Program (MAP). Eligibility is based upon a student’s EFC. These need-based grants are funded by the State of Illinois and administered by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission. It’s important to note that this program is date-sensitive, so the sooner you complete the FAFSA for Illinois residence, the better (and sooner) you’ll be positioned for a favorable financial decision. Learn more about state grants.

What is an EFC?

Your Expected Family Contribution is an amount determined by the federal government and is an indication of your family’s ability to pay for a college education.


Loans are borrowed from either the government or a private entity to finance expenses directly related to the cost of your education. This money must be repaid and is subject to the terms and conditions outlined by the lender.
