Dear _______________________________________:
We anticipate that you will be eligible to receive a Monetary Award from the Illinois Student
Assistance Commission (ISAC) for the 2020-2021 academic year. Before the funds can be
disbursed, Financial Aid Services must verify your Illinois residency. ISAC rules state that a self
supporting student is considered a resident of Illinois if he/she meets the following criteria:
"An independent student is a resident of Illinois if the applicant has a true, fixed and
permanent home within the State of Illinois (at the time of application) and has so resided
for a period of 12 continuous, full months immediately prior to the start of the academic
year for which assistance is requested."
This means that you must have resided in Illinois prior to August 19, 2019. Please complete the
attached form and return it to our office with a copy of at least one of the documents listed. If
you have any questions regarding this matter, please call our office.
Sincerely,
