FAFSA Completion Initiative
2017-2018 now available.
The Office of Higher Education (OHE) will be taking part in the FAFSA Completion Initiative effective for the 2016-2017 academic year. This means participating high school districts, high schools and/or other designated entities (public or non-profit organizations providing direct services to students related to postsecondary attendance) will be able to log into OHE's FAFSA completion web portal to determine which individual students have submitted a 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and whether the FAFSA has any problems requiring follow-up with the student. The end goal is to increase the number of students completing the FAFSA and make sure any FAFSA problems are resolved prior to the beginning of the college academic year. To participate in this project, a district/school/organization will need to complete the data-sharing agreement and return it to OHE.
