Timing Is Everything: FAFSA Filing Trends Webcast

When students file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) can be just as important as if they do, especially where non-federal grant aid is concerned. Many state grant programs utilize FAFSA data as well, but these programs can also have fixed application deadlines or dispense funds on a first-come, first-served basis until resources have been depleted. 

CampusLogic’s recent Data Snapshot, Timing is Everything: FAFSA Filing Trends, documents patterns in the timing of when approximately 2.4 million FAFSA applications from the 2018-19 aid cycle were submitted between October 1, 2017 and October 31, 2018. It also examines trends in the submission volume and explores the extent to which there may be filing patterns linked to individuals’ background characteristics. 

Webcast Discussion Topics:
Join this webcast for an in-depth discussion about the implications FAFSA filing dates can have accessibility, borrowing, and completion for different student populations including lower-Income, returning adults, and independent FAFSA filers. 

A must-attend for institutional leaders and national and state-level policymakers focused on improving access and affordability for post-secondary students.
