Increasing FAFSA completion rates in Georgia may play a key role in reaching Governor Deal’s goal to have 60 percent of Georgia’s adult population hold a postsecondary credential by 2020. This could mean an associate degree, bachelor’s, master’s or beyond. Studies have shown that students are more likely to enroll in postsecondary education if they simply complete the FAFSA.
College Goal Georgia events are here to help students (high school seniors, returning college students and adult learners) and families, complete the FAFSA and debunk some of the myths surrounding the process, such as:
The FAFSA is not the long paper form it used to be. It has become shorter, simpler and more user friendly to make applying for financial aid easier.
GSFC has an online tool to track the FAFSA completion rates of high school seniors in Georgia to promote awareness and increase FAFSA completion. As the Federal Student Aid Administrator for Georgia, GSFC receives all information on completed FAFSAs for the state and is able to provide the data through the FAFSA Completion tool.
GSFC encourages anyone planning to go to college or just thinking about it to complete the FAFSA. Check out the dates and locations for this year’s CGG events and find the help you need.
