  • FAFSAs Completed (FAFSA Completion #): The number of completed FAFSAs among first-time filing applicants no older than 19 at the cutoff date who will have received their high school diploma by the start of the school year to which they are applying for aid
  • Senior Count (Seniors #): The estimated high school senior count is based on the TEA October PEIMS 12th grade enrollment snapshot when available, otherwise the prior year’s 11th grade enrollment is used
  • FAFSA Completion % (FAFSA Completion %):  The percentage of high school seniors who complete the FAFSA. Calculated as the # FAFSAs Completed divided by the estimated Senior Count
  • FAFSAs Submitted (not shown): The number of FAFSA submissions from first-time filing applicants no older than 19 who will have received their high school diploma by the start of the school year to which they are applying for aid.  Submitted applications may be rejected by the Central Processing System if key pieces of information are missing.  Applications not rejected are considered completed
  • FAFSA Submission % (not shown): The percentage of high school seniors who submitted the FAFSA. Calculated as the # FAFSAs Submitted divided by the estimated Senior Count
  • Submission-Completion % Gap (S-C Gap): Submission % minus Completion %.  The gap represents the % of students who have submitted incomplete FAFSAs that need to be corrected
