New Graduation Requirement - FAFSA, Illinois Alternative App. or Opt Out Form

On June 1, 2020, the State of Illinois signed a bill into law that every student in a public school must file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), or as eligible to complete the Alternative Application for Illinois Financial Aid, or complete the FAFSA Non Participation Form in order to graduate high school.

Senior students and their parents are able to submit the FAFSA starting October 1 using the website https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa

Students who are undocumented and do not have a social security number or for students who are transgender may use the Alternative Application for Illinois State Aid at https://www.isac.org/AlternativeApp

Parents/students who do not want to complete the FAFSA will need to submit the FAFSA non participation form to the SVHS College and Career Coordinator by May 1 of the year they graduate.  The form can be downloaded from https://www.isbe.net/Documents/FAFSA-Non-Participation-Form.pdf
