We are announcing the availability, for the first time, of your twelfth grade students’ FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) completion status in WISEdash for Districts. This data is available due to a new collaboration with the Wisconsin Higher Education Aids Board. To view the dashboard, titled “FAFSA Completion Status by Subgroup”, districts will need to opt-in by signing a District FAFSA Data Sharing Agreement and send a scanned pdf to Gregg Curtis, School Counseling Consultant on DPI’s Student Services, Prevention and Wellness (SSPW) team via email at email@example.com. The dashboard will be accessible to WISEdash for Districts users who have been granted a new security role called “Detail FAFSA Access”.
For more information on how to get started, your staff may also visit the FAFSA About the Data page. If there are questions about accessing this new dashboard please open a WISEsupport ticket and someone will respond shortly.
Please share this information with school counselors.
