Welcome to the FAFSA Facts Portal!

Notes on the information below:

  • As part of our inclusion in the National College Access Network's FAFSA Completion Challenge, we're competing against 25 other cities to increase the FAFSA completion rate by at least 5% in city and charter schools. This number is reflected in the target number of submissions for each high school in the table below.
  • Submission and completion data is reported by the Federal Department of Education every week. This information provides the raw number, not student level information. RCSD counselors can access student-level data thanks to an agreement between RCSD and NYSED that RCAN advocated for as part of the FAFSA completion challenge.
  • This year, the counselor from a City or Charter high school who refers the most students to our events will receive a $100 Visa gift card! Second and third place will each receive a $50 Visa gift card. Students must indicate the referring counselor on their registration form. For example- a school may have 10 attendees but the senior counselor may only have 5 referrals.
