As of April 10th, only 40% of graduating high school seniors in New Mexico have completed the FAFSA form for financial aid for college. At this time last year, 9,430 seniors had completed the form; this year that number is 8,753. PED is working on some resources to help students, families and counselors work towards completing this form while we are all practicing social-distancing. PED has created this infographic about FAFSA help resources that we encourage you to share.
The EOC continues to offer its educational services remotely via phone, online video conferencing and email to any individual who might need assistance in applying to college for this summer/fall 2020 and/or in completing the FAFSA. Please feel free to contact any of the EOC advisors for further questions or support.
