You're from Illinois!

Central’s commitment to affordability is our assurance to make the Central experience possible for you and your family.

To qualify for this financial aid program, students must be admitted to Central with a cumulative GPA of 3.00/4.0 scale or better and total family income less than $100,000 per year. Students can rest easy knowing that the cost at Central for the upcoming year will not exceed the published cost of your flagship public university after federal, state and Central financial aid is awarded.

Illinois students who meet the cumulative GPA and family income criteria will be awarded financial aid to match the University of Illinois' published cost of $21,748.

Central College commits to providing you the Central College grants/scholarships amount awarded to you your first year, for all four years at Central, provided you are in good academic standing and complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) each year.

We look forward to working with you! If you have questions, call 641-628-7616 or get started here.
