To help students access all of the financial aid they qualify for, Florida College Access Network (FCAN) created the Florida FAFSA Challenge, a statewide campaign to increase the proportion of 12th graders who complete the FAFSA. Today, FCAN is pleased to announce the release of this year’s Florida FAFSA Challenge dashboard, which provides school, district, and state-level data on high school seniors who have completed the FAFSA to date during the 2020-21 school year.
The 2020-21 Florida FAFSA Challenge runs through March 26, 2021 and encourages schools and districts to increase the number of students completing a FAFSA by 5% or more compared to the previous year. Early completion is important for students to qualify for aid that is distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Florida FAFSA Challenge recognizes the top-performing schools and districts in the following categories:
- MVP — Highest FAFSA completion rate through March 26, 2021
- Most Improved — Highest increase in FAFSA completion compared to previous year through March 26, 2021
We will also again recognize FAFSA Champions, which includes all schools and districts that increase their FAFSA completion rate by at least 5% compared to last school year.
