What is the Ohio FAFSA Completion Initiative?

The Ohio FAFSA Completion Initiative focuses on increasing the number of high school seniors who complete the FAFSA application.  Increasing FAFSA completion rates is a fundamental step in the state’s efforts to meet our postsecondary attainment goal. Students who complete the FAFSA are more likely to enroll in higher education, persist in their college coursework, and obtain a degree. 

What is the FAFSA?

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the key to student aid, especially federal financial student aid programs. In addition, many colleges and universities use the information from the FAFSA to determine eligibility for grants.

When does the FAFSA window open and how do I apply?

​The FAFSA window opens October 1 of each year.  To apply online, visit the official FAFSA website.
