PA Department of Education Rolls Out PA FAFSA Go! Initiative Encouraging Students to Complete Their 2023-24 FAFSA

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) joined Slippery Rock University and the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) to promote the PA FAFSA Go! initiative and remind students to fill out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the coming year.

"Over the past few years, FAFSA completion has been down and millions of dollars have been left on the table by Pennsylvania learners," said Dr. Tanya I. Garcia, PDE's Deputy Secretary and Commissioner for Postsecondary and Higher Education. "We want to make sure that all students who are eligible to complete a FAFSA get the assistance they need to access affordable higher education."

The FAFSA is an application required to apply for federal student aid such as federal grants, work-study and loans to help pay for college.

Speakers Include:
Dr. William Behre, President of Slippery Rock University
Dr. Tanya I. Garcia, Deputy Secretary and Commissioner for Postsecondary and Higher Education (for PDE)
Alyssa Dobson, SRU director of financial aid and scholarships
Wendy Dunlap, PHEAA Access Partner for that region
