2024 FAFSA Completion Summer Outreach Campaign

The U.S. Department of Education invites you to drive and support student completion of the 2024–25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We request that you engage with your adult education programs and stakeholders to promote FAFSA completion over the summer, reminding students that there is still time to access grant money for educational opportunities this fall.

Adult education programs play a crucial role in advancing social mobility within our higher education system. It is essential that we all actively promote FAFSA completion to support first-time attendees, currently enrolled students, and previously enrolled students who have earned some credits but have not yet obtained a credential or degree. Completing a FAFSA can unlock additional resources, making education more accessible and affordable. Completing the FAFSA places affordable postsecondary education within reach for thousands of students.

The Department is launching a FAFSA Completion Summer Outreach campaign to engage stakeholder groups who regularly interact with adult education programs over the summer. We hope you will join this initiative! Please inform your programs and share this folder of FAFSA Completion promotional resources. We are calling for a united effort to remind students to complete the FAFSA and reinforce that there is still time to access financial aid for classes this fall.

Adult education programs are key partners in this effort, given the high percentage of Pell-eligible students you serve. Please consider different ways  your programs could support FAFSA completion to reach current and prospective students this summer:

  • Conduct FAFSA promotional campaigns and completion events.
  • Coordinate with local and community-based organizations to host their students.
  • Enlist current students as Summer Peer Mentors who can assist with FAFSA completion and enrollment.
  • Engage in public outreach via social media.

Thank you for considering participating in and promoting a successful Summer FAFSA Outreach campaign. We value your partnership in notifying our nation’s students about how completing the FAFSA now can still open doors to postsecondary opportunities this fall. Let us know if you have any questions (email at FAFSA24@ed.gov) and thank you in advance for your support!
