With year one of Early FAFSA under our belts, what can we learn from it? Did the earlier date, PPY, and new completion campaigns result in more FAFSAs filed? Join this session to learn from successful FAFSA completion campaigns including Form Your Future, a  nationwide, open license campaign to promote FAFSA completion. Best practices, with available data, will come from the Ohio FAFSA completion campaign and the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce's FAFSA Completion Challenge campaign. Also included will be NCAN’s recommendations to simplify the entire aid application process from start to finish.
