Watch On Demand
FAFSA completion and college enrollment are closely associated with each other, and consequently FAFSA completion deserves a lot of attention in the college access field. Although FAFSA completion for high school seniors is set to rise for the second consecutive year, about 40% of seniors nationwide will not complete a FAFSA by the fall. There is room to grow in many states and communities nationwide. Many states, school districts, and college access organizations are seeking ways to reach out to and support more students with FAFSA completion and other key postsecondary milestones. How can we continue to connect with students and answer their questions before, during, and after FAFSA completion and even well into their postsecondary pathways?
In this webinar, you’ll hear from two organizations who are using technology to conduct outreach to students at scale as they share their promising practices and lessons learned, the technology provider partnering to help that outreach happen, and a national advocacy organization examining best practices for student support across the country. Learn about what using FAFSA completion data means for enrolling incoming freshmen and current students, and explore how states and institutions are tapping technology to go beyond FAFSA completion and help students matriculate and persist to a degree.
