Strategic Use of FAFSA List Information by Colleges
Porter, Stephen R.; Conzelmann, Johnathan G.
Research in Higher Education, v58 n5 p568-579 Aug 2017
Students filling out the FAFSA list colleges and universities where they wish their data sent. Until recently, colleges were provided this list, and the practice was suspended, given concerns that colleges were using the list to strategically allocate aid. Using the, 2011-2012 NPSAS, we analyze student financial aid packages to determine if list position affects aid. We find little evidence that it does.
