The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the form families need to fill out to get any financial aid from the federal government to help pay for college. Several states and colleges also use the FAFSA to determine which students get financial aid and how much they'll get. Illinois requires graduating high school seniors to complete the FAFSA.
Campus visits offer students the opportunity to see firsthand colleges' facilities, equipment, and housing, meet staff, talk to current students, and get answers to their questions. LTHS also hosts a number of campus callers during the school day.
Beginning with the Class of 2023 official transcripts should be ordered through their SchooLinks account, Students should contact their Counselors with any questions.
