New York State’s FAFSA Completion Initiative

The Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC) encourages all school districts and high schools to participate in the national Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Completion Initiative in order to receive important federal and state financial aid filing status information about your college bound high school seniors.

Knowing which students have not filed for financial aid will allow your school and/or school district to assist more students and families in completing a FAFSA and maximize their access to free and low cost financial aid to support their college costs.

There is no registration deadline! While you can register for the FAFSA Completion Initiative any time, We encourage you to register now so that you can complete the required forms and access information beginning January 1 for your students entering college in fall 2016.
