Build School-Based College Preparation Supports for Students: Hosting a FAF

Wednesday, November 15, 2023 at 12:00 PM (EST) to Wednesday, November 29, 2023 at 1:00 AM (EST)

Event Details

Recent research from ACT has highlighted the importance of school-based college preparation supports for students and their self-reported preparedness for college. The greatest challenge students reported was their lack of financial preparedness. One way to address this is by supporting students through the FAFSA completion process. With FAFSA simplification, there are some key changes coming to the 2024–25 form graduating seniors will need support navigating. The new form is being released in December 2023, and the National College Attainment Network (NCAN) can prepare you to help students and families complete the form. Get a line-by-line review of the new form, address updates to the FSA ID process for individuals without Social Security numbers. Review the FAFSA Submission Summary (formerly the Student Aid Report), and learn about resources and tools available from the U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid office and NCAN. Hear  recommendations for building FAFSA completion supports into your school’s college-going efforts.
