HARRISBURG- PA families could make more informed decisions about pursuing college and job training programs under a bill introduced by Sen. Scott Martin of Lancaster and Berks Counties. The proposal would require high school seniors to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA, which determines eligibility for financial aid programs. Completing the FAFSA ensures families have access to vital information on aid packages for higher education, career and technical education, certificate programs, and more. Martin says many families miss out on chances to train for quality careers because they don’t know what programs or funding packages are available to them or because they think they can’t afford it. Under Martin’s bill, families who choose not to complete the application could opt out on a form provided to parents or guardians. The requirement would not go into effect until the 2024-25 school year.
