Filling out your federal student aid application for the first time can be a confusing process.

Karen Macella, a trained FAFSA expert from the Illinois Student Aid Commission, will lead the workshop. She will also be available to answer questions and help with FAFSA completion, according to the news release.
Two Spanish speaking interpreters will be on hand to assist at the workshop.
The workshop is free and open to the public. To reserve a spot, contact Jon Teune, HHS college and career counselor, at (847) 659-6559.
