FAFSA Completion Rates
Percentage of Senior Class Completing a FAFSA
About this measure:
The above chart includes all public WV high schools and those WV private high schools that have provided us with second-month-enrollment data.
FAFSA completion data is provided by the U.S.Department of Education, Office of Federal Student Aid. You can view the source data at this link: https://studentaid.gov/data-center/student/application-volume/fafsa-completion-high-school
West Virginia enrollment data is provided by the West Virginia Department of Education. Enrollment figures presented below are based on second month enrollment counts.
This measure is intended to be a gauge by which to measure FAFSA awareness at each school as compared to previous years. Numbers provided in this chart may not be an exact representation of student enrollment and/or FAFSAs submitted.
Note: If fewer than five FAFSAs have been submitted for a school, data will not be reported by the U.S. Department of Education.
As of April 14, 2017, the U.S. Department of Education began to include most 19-year olds in the completion data. These data were previously excluded.
Also, please note: When students fill out the FAFSA during their junior year to determine Pell grant eligibility for dual enrollment, they are not counted in the FAFSA numbers when they apply as a senior. The US Department of Education does not count anyone who filed a FAFSA in the previous cycle in the data they report. For this reason, we acknowledge that some of our Central WV high schools’ FAFSA completion rates are being under reported.
