Presentations on Preparing for College
Below are presentations given by ISAC (Illinois Student Assistance Commission). In 1957, state lawmakers created the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) to ensure that financial considerations did not prevent Illinois students from realizing their postsecondary educational goals. ISACorps members are near-peer mentors whose main mission is to expand ISAC’s college access and outreach programs and services to help students navigate the process of applying to and entering college. The ISACorps is responsible for assisting students with career exploration, college selection, test preparation, scholarship searches, application completion, and the financial aid process. They also build and enhance ISAC’s partnerships with local schools, businesses, and nonprofits in order to deliver free career and college planning and preparation services to students from families with no prior college-going experience.
