Apply for Financial Aid

Students interested in applying for financial aid at MacMurray College should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at This will supply our Financial Aid Office with all the necessary information to get started planning students' financial aid packages. Eligibility for the following programs is determined each year based on FAFSA results: Pell Grant, FSEOG, Federal Work Study, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Direct Loans, State of Illinois MAP Grant, and MacMurray College Grant.

Effective May 10, 2015, students and parents will need to set up a new Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID to access FAFSA on the web. The PIN previously used by applicants to sign the FAFSA electronically will no longer be valid and will be replaced with the FSA ID. Instructions on how to set it up can be found here (PDF).

Visit for free resources and assistance in filing the FAFSA and searching for scholarships. View the 7 Easy Steps to the FAFSA video here.

The application is available for the upcoming academic year on January 1st. The preferential application filing date is February 1st; however, applications are accepted after that date. Please be aware that some funds, such as State of Illinois and some institutional need-based grant funding, are awarded on a first come, first serve basis.

MacMurray's Title IV school code is 001717. Be sure to list us on your FAFSA!
