Abstract

Completing the FAFSA is a critical step in the college-going process. This report details Iowa’s FAFSA filing rate for public high school seniors over time. In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we also analyze trends in overall FAFSA filing and FAFSA renewals. When we compare Iowa’s FAFSA rates over time, we find that the 2020-21 rate falls below previous years, likely due to COVID-19. We find that all higher education sectors in Iowa are receiving fewer FAFSAs for 2020-21 than for 2019-20, suggesting that students are reconsidering their postsecondary plans for fall 2020.
