Financial Aid? There’s a New App for that Called myStudentAid

Will a new smartphone app help students get more federal aid?

Reported by EAB, the U.S. Department of Education recently launched the app, myStudentAid, to help make FAFSA completion easier than ever. Because the research sadly shows that students most likely to benefit from the FAFSA are also the least likely to complete it.

The takeaway? How can we use new technologies to make it easier for our students to take advantage of the state, federal, and institutional aid they may be eligible for, in order to make persistence far more likely?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
