FSA Lunch & Learn: Reversing FAFSA Declines
FAFSA applications are down 16%. With housing insecurity, food insecurity, and the financial burden in the current economic climate, it's no secret why. The challenge becomes how to mitigate and reverse this trend.
Listen in on the conversation as we discuss the impact FAFSA declines are having within the Financial Aid community and the innovative ways schools are addressing the challenges:
- Virtual "FAFSA completion nights"
- 24/7 support through AI chatbots
- Video tutorials
- Text "nudges" to motivate and push students along
