Filling up on FAFSA Facts

Rochester has had consistent increases in the number and percentage of city students filling out their FAFSA forms since the launch of FAFSA Fest in 2015. During the 2016-17 school year, 50% of seniors completed the FAFSA before the end of June compared to 48% in 2017-18.
Completion rates are calculated using submission data from the US Department of Education and the number of seniors in each class as reported on September 1- not necessarily the number of seniors on track to graduate or the number of seniors enrolled by mid-winter.
