Governor Whitmer has challenged all Michigan high schools to set a bold FAFSA completion goal, select a FAFSA champion, and systematically track data on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) completions. High schools accepting the challenge should sign up for the College Cash Campaign, which will provide the resources necessary to support high schools working to prioritize FAFSA completion. The goal of the College Cash Campaign is to increase Michigan’s FAFSA completion rate to 75%.
To support the Governor's FAFSA Challenge, the College Cash Campaign Affordability Tracker provides accessible data for schools to better understand their current FAFSA completion landscape and progress with the College Board Opportunity Scholarship (CBOS) steps. The FAFSA data displayed on the tracker is provided by MIStudentAid within the Michigan Department of Treasury. The CBOS data on the tracker is provided by the College Board.
