FAFSA Campaign Series: 25 Facebook Posts

With the start of each new calendar year, we begin our task of creating a successful campaign encouraging students to file the FAFSA, and preferably file early. This week we’ll continue to provide resources that can assist you as you continue with this year’s campaign.



Using Facebook to Promote FAFSA Completion
The Federal Student Aid Digital Engagement Group has a Facebook page and also has prewritten 25 Facebook posts to make your FAFSA Campaign easier if you have a Facebook page for your financial aid office (you can also share these with your marketing or admissions office).
