With the cost of higher education continuing to rise, state Rep.

Larry Walsh, Jr., Elwood, will help residents receive the financial assistance

they need to pay for their schooling at a College Financial Aid Information Session

on Monday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Joliet Moose Lodge, located at 25 Springfield

Avenue in Joliet.

"Whether an individual enrolling in college for the first time or returning to

further their education, financial assistance is available to help cover the costs

of going to college," Walsh said. "Every student should fill out the Free

Application for Federal Student Aid to see if they qualify for grants or

low-interest loans."

Walsh's free event will feature experts from the Illinois Student Assistance

Commission who will discuss the different forms of financial aid and work-study

programs that are available, answer questions about the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), explain how student loans work, detail application deadlines and provide other helpful tips.

Families unable to attend this presentation can still find helpful information on

making college more affordable at www.isac.org. For more information, or to RSVP,

please contact Walsh's constituent service office at 815-730-8600, or
