Bite-sized higher ed news from a campus near you

The city of Memphis, Tenn.'s FAFSA-filing campaign launched last year has resulted in the highest FAFSA completion rates in the country. Through the Memphis FAFSA campaign, more than 100 community organizations and high school counselors helped more than 7,000 graduating seniors fill out the FAFSA in 2015. According to a new analysis from the National College Access Network, 68% of graduating seniors completed the FAFSA in Memphis, compared with a low of 25% in North Las Vegas (Fain, Inside Higher Ed, 12/1; Watts, Chalkbeat, 2/4/16).
