Thanks to the U.S. Department of Education, information on the number of this school year’s Florida high school seniors who have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now available!
FCAN has published a “First Look” data dashboard showing the number of seniors who have completed the FAFSA by school since October 1, the day students could begin filling out the form. In addition to current FAFSA completion data, outcomes for the previous school year are also provided.
The “First Look” FAFSA dashboard compares completion figures only. Through December 28, 229 Florida public schools were ahead in the number of completed FAFSA forms compared to the same time period last year. FAFSA completion rates will be released once enrollment figures for Florida high schools become available towards the end of the year.
This dashboard reflects FAFSA completion through 12/28/18. Check back each Monday for additional updates.
