Michigan FAFSA Tracker


Did you hear the news? The new Michigan Achievement Scholarship is a historic investment by our state and will vastly improve college affordability for many families. Now more than ever, the FAFSA is a critical step to securing funds for postsecondary pathways. To determine eligibility for the Michigan Achievement Scholarship and other financial aid opportunities, students must complete the FAFSA.

This FAFSA Tracker provides accessible data for schools to better understand their current Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) completion. The goal is to increase Michigan’s FAFSA completion rate to 75%. Through the FAFSA Tracker tool, all College Bound Michigan (CBMI) sites will have access to an individual school profile displaying current FAFSA completion data, trends over time, and a comparison to previous FAFSA completion cycles. The Tracker is a great tool for school teams to track their school’s progress and to easily highlight the successes. The FAFSA data displayed on the tracker is provided by MI Student Aid.

Check out these resources about the new Michigan Achievement Scholarship or visit the MI Student Aid site for information.

Michigan's Class of 2023 has completed 63,387 FAFSA applications as of 9/1/23*
