Administered by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC)
What is it?The IVG is a grant which, if a student qualifies, will cover tuition and most fees at 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.

Now what?It takes ISAC approximately 4 weeks to respond. You will receive a letter of eligibility in the mail.Once you receive your letter, please bring in a copy to the Financial Aid office.
In order to use your grant you must: • Be enrolled at an Illinois public 2- or 4-year college. • Not be in default on any student loan, nor owe a refund on any state or federal grant. • Maintain a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher.
After confirming this information we will be able to pay your account.
