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 three percent from the prior year. The initiative runs from Oct. 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020 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
