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 is pleased to publish this “First Look” data dashboard showing the number of high school seniors who have completed the FAFSA, by school, since October. In addition to current FAFSA completion data, outcomes for the previous school year are also provided.
New this year, thanks to recent changes made by the U.S. Department of Education, the dashboard includes FAFSA completions for high school seniors up to age 19. Previously, the FAFSA counts only included completers who were 18 years of age or younger. The change has resulted in higher reported FAFSA completions for most schools.
The “First Look” FAFSA dashboard compares completion figures only. FAFSA completion rates will be released once enrollment figures for Florida high schools become available towards the end of the year.
This dashboard has been updated to reflect FAFSA completion rates through 12/29/17. Check back each Monday for additional updates.
