What Works Clearinghouse
This paper presents an updated WWC (What Works Clearinghouse) Quick Review of the report "The Role of Simplification and Information in College Decisions: Results from the H&R Block FAFSA Experiment". The study examined whether assistance in filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) increases the likelihood of filing the FAFSA, college enrollment, and financial aid receipt. The analysis of independent adults described in this report meets WWC evidence standards. The analysis of dependent students, FAFSA versus control comparison, described in this report meets WWC evidence standards with reservations.
