Using funding from Lumina Foundation, the Center for American Progress (CAP) collaborated with the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) and the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) to model what would happen if students only had to fill out the FAFSA once every few years. To test the feasibility of this idea, we examined data used to calculate aid eligibility for the same set of students over multiple years and we were able to gauge whether results are stable enough to make a one-time FAFSA workable. This session will present the results.
