The 2024-2025 FAFSA completion data will not be available until after Federal Student Aid starts processing FAFSAs. This could take some time so please be patient and use our FAFSA resources to complete your 24-25 FAFSA.

Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a crucial step in the college access process and is one of the best tools to illustrate college affordability for students. FAFSA completion rates have been declining in Kentucky and across the nation for several years and have not been helped by the COVID-19 pandemic. We need to continue to promote the importance of filing the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1.

FAFSA Completion Challenge

Public and private high schools in Kentucky are invited to join the FAFSA Completion Challenge to promote FAFSA completion for the class of 2024 and for the chance to win $500 for their school! Participating high schools will compete among other schools with similar senior class sizes. Please note: Final groups may be adjusted slightly after registration closes to ensure there are approximately the same number of participating schools in each group.
