  10. 10. Step 4: Expense Planning for Post Secondary Education Students who fill out a FAFSA have 72% higher odds of persisting than their peers who do not file. Lower income students have a 122% higher odds of persisting than their low-income peers who do not file a FAFSA. Heather Novak and Lyle McKinney, 2011 FAFSA Rationale
  11. 11. Step 4: Expense Planning for Post Secondary Education For every dollar that California invests in students who go to college, the state will get a net return on investment of four dollars and fifty cents in the form of increased taxes on graduates’ earnings and savings on social services and incarceration. $60 million in increased Cal Grants offered equals $250 million in California’s future - California Campaign For College, 2012 FAFSA Rationale
  12. 12. This concept is referred to as the summer melt. One of the main reasons that causes students to melt is financial aid related matters. Each year roughly 20% of our graduating seniors who have been admitted to a university do not show up for their Fall term. This melting rate can increase in areas which have increased numbers of lower socioeconomically disadvantaged students. Avoid the Summer Melt FAFSA Rationale
  13. 13. Conservative estimates show that in the State of California, one half billion dollars is never claimed as a result of qualified students not submitting their FAFSA. - Interview with Greg Darnieder, U.S. Dept. of Ed., 2014
