Completing the FAFSA is the first step to accessing financial aid for college.
The DC FAFSA Completion Initiative encourages schools, and community-based organizations to set a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) completion goal to increase the proportion of their high school seniors who complete the FAFSA by 3 percent from the prior year. The initiative runs from Oct. 1, 2022- Aug. 31, 2023 and is open to all public and public charter high schools in the District, and interested community-based organizations.
While many schools and community-based organizations in the District have already begun working hard to boost FAFSA completion rates, this initiative will recognize their achievements and support their efforts through the following:
- The FAFSA Portal
- DC FAFSA Completion Initiative Toolkit
- DC FAFSA Completion Awards
