FAFSA Completion Rates by High School  (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

As the cost of college continues to increase, financial aid becomes ever more important. While many factors are involved in the decision to attend college, a strong correlation exists between FAFSA completion and college enrollment.  

For a small school, So. Aroostook has a high FAFSA completion rate.  Much of the credit for our high FAFSA rate goes to SACS School Counselor Jessica Greene and her work with our students.  So. Aroostook Class of 2020, FAFSA completion rate as of April 15, 2020 is 80%.  

Below is a brief history and comparison of FAFSA rates with RSU 50 and some other high schools in Maine.   You can see all Maine High School FAFSA rates at https://www.famemaine.com/education/topics/filing-the-fafsa/fafsa-completion-rates-by-high-school/
