Class of 2024 Faces
FAFSA Hurdle

Guest article from 

National College Attainment Network (NCAN): 

AESA and AASA are working with NCAN and will continue to keep you abreast of news, updates, and resources that can help to make this FAFSA cycle run smoother. Although the new FAFSA means expanded Pell Grant eligibility and increased Pell Grant awards for many students, the class of 2024 still faces significant challenges this spring to get back to the levels of FAFSA completion previous classes have achieved.
