EDUCATION DEPARTMENT LAUNCHES NEW DATA TOOL TO HELP HIGH SCHOOL OFFICIALS INCREASE FAFSA COMPLETION AND COLLEGE ACCESSIBILITY

School officials can now track FAFSA submission and completion statistics at individual high schools on the FAFSA Completion website, which will help them ensure that their students are filling out the FAFSA and therefore are able to determine their eligibility for federal student aid – a key factor in families’ college decisions.
