College Cash Campaign: FAFSA & ORSAA Events Underway!
Across the country, the class of 2017 left $2.3 billion in financial aid on the table by not filling out the FAFSA. Luckily, schools across Oregon are providing hands-on help to students and families to complete the FAFSA or ORSAA as part of Oregon's College Cash Campaign (CCC).
So far, schools from across the state report:
- Parents have been active participants in 80% of the events.
- 84% of participting students have obtained their FSA ID or submited their FAFSA.
- 95% of College Application Week sites will be integrating CCC activities into their events so there will be lots more to come!
College Cash Campaign is more than just FAFSA and ORSAA completion; schools will be supporting students and families throughout the year with scholarship applications, understanding financial aid award letters and much more. Schools can still join to get weekly reminders on how to support students and families plus free posters and stickers (availability permitting). Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see the action all year long!
