He has delivered seminars on college financial aid and planning for more than 25 years, reaching more than 200,000 attendees over that timeframe. Palmasani is the author of the forthcoming book “Right College, Right Price” and has shared his expertise through both local and national media outlets.

In addition to Palmasani, the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) will be on hand to distribute important information to parents. ISAC administers scholarship, grant, loan and prepaid tuition programs for the State of Illinois, and is committed to making college accessible and affordable for all Illinois students.
