New Dashboard Tracks FAFSA Completion Rates

October 27, 2020

The National College Attainment Network has created a dashboard to track completion rates of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid by state.

The interactive dashboard, called the #FormYourFuture FAFSA Tracker, ranks states by how many of their high school seniors have completed the FAFSA. It also measures change in completion rates year over year.

As of Oct. 16, nearly 10 percent of high school seniors nationally had completed the FAFSA -- down 14.3 percent from last year.

The tracker uses federal student aid data to provide weekly updates and comparisons from the national level down to individual schools.

Illinois is currently leading with the highest FAFSA completion rate so far this year. Alaska and Puerto Rico have the lowest rates.
