Abstract

This policy brief examines FAFSA filing rates at public and private high schools across Wisconsin, using data from the U.S. Department of Education. It finds that schools serving more low-income students and students of color have lower filing rates than higher income schools and those serving predominantly white or Asian students. The brief concludes with policy and programmatic recommendations for increasing FAFSA filing rates statewide.
