Real-time FAFSA Completion Rates Now Available to Drive Improvement

Posted on February 12, 2016 in Press Releases

More than ever, young people need postsecondary education and training in order to thrive in the economy.

One of the strongest predictors that a student will enroll in college is whether they complete the federal financial aid application known as FAFSA. For the first time, an interactive data tool is available to help Multnomah County high schools and community partners track their success in helping students complete the FAFSA and move forward on the path to college.

The tool, designed by All Hands Raised using federal data, provides an easy-to-use, interactive way to track progress on a weekly basis across local high schools, districts and the county as a whole.

(Note: The interactive charts are incompatible with Mac computers, however the tab with raw numbers will appear accurately. Mac users desiring a customized chart should contact All Hands Raised)
