Administered by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC)
What is it?The ING is a grant which, if you qualify, will cover tuition and some fees at all Illinois state-supported colleges, universities, and community colleges. If eligible, a student is given 120 units of credit, equivalent to approximately 4 years of study, towards credit and non-credit, undergraduate and graduate level courses at Illinois state-supported schools. The grant is administered by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission and is subject to their rules and regulations.
To qualify, a student must: 1. Have completed one full year of service in the Illinois National Guard. 2. Be a current Illinois National Guard member.
Now what?You will receive a letter of eligibility in the mail. Once you receive your letter, please bring in a copy for your file as well as a copy of your current schedule with “ING” and a current phone number written on it.
In order to use your grant, you must: 1. Be enrolled at an Illinois public two- or four-year college. 2. Not be in default on any student loan, nor owe a refund on any state or federal grant. 2. 3. Maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher.
After confirming this information we will be able to pay your account.
★ The ING does not cover laboratory fees, online course fees, late registration fees, technology fees or auxiliary fees at this time; therefore, be aware these costs will fall to you, the student.
