Tempe area completion rate for college aid applications

0


TEMPE, AZ – Applications for federal college financial aid are significantly lower this year, which could mean fewer freshmen when classes begin this fall.

Prospective students can complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid to qualify for subsidized student loans and other forms of assistance. FAFSA claims have declined 5.8% nationally this year compared to the same period last year. About 1.72 million students have completed the application as of June 25, up from 1.83 million in 2020, according to Associated Press analysis of FAFSA data.

In February of this year, FAFSA requests were down 10% from last year. But the completion rate increased in the spring, when schools were able to hold more FAFSA school aid events that were canceled last year due to the pandemic.

A drop in the FAFSA’s completion rate could be a harbinger of falling enrollments in the fall. The class of 2020 had 3.7% fewer FAFSA requests than the class of 2019; post-secondary enrollment fell 6.8 percent between the class of 2020 and 2019, according to the National College Attainment Network.

In Arizona, 30,977 FAFSA applications were completed as of June 25, compared to 34,208 completed at the same time last year. This is a drop of 9.5%. (See how high schools in the Tempe area stack up against each other below.)

The decline is most pronounced among Title 1 high schools, meaning those where low-income students account for at least 40 percent of enrollment. The Title 1 high school completion rate fell 8.83%, compared to a drop of 3.86 for schools not enrolled in Title 1.

In Arizona, completed applications fell 14.7% at Title 1 schools, compared with a 4.0% drop for applications from untitled schools June 1 through June 25.

Here’s how schools in the Tempe area are doing with the FAFSA completing June 25. See more Tempe area high schools here. Note: Percentage changes may be affected by a relatively small difference in completions, especially for smaller schools. FAFSA data only counts students who are not older than 19.

There has been a push in recent years for students to complete the FAFSA earlier in their senior year.
