The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is the essential first step students must take to apply for college financial aid. Missing out on free financial aid could mean taking on more debt to pay for college – so let’s work together to make sure that every student who qualifies for college aid receives it and goes on to earn a degree.
In the 2018-19 FAFSA cycle, Rhode Island ranked eighth in the country for the number of high school seniors completing the form. This year, we want to make Rhode Island number one! We're challenging all high schools to help us meet the statewide goal of 70% completion.
Check out the current 2020-2021 FAFSA filing statistics to see how your school is doing.
