“I saved so much time and was so much more effective. Because my Going Merry dashboard showed me who had completed or stalled in the FAFSA® process, I could provide targeted support. Our FAFSA completion rate is over 10% higher than last year."

"We have tried many things through the years to increase FAFSA® completion rates, but Going Merry surpasses them all. The help features have been essential resources for our students, as well as for counselors."

"FAFSA® Made Easier helped us double our completion rate this year, which has translated into a record number of graduates planning to attend college out of state. Students also taught themselves a great deal about how financial aid works as they followed Going Merry’s program."
"Using Going Merry's FAFSA® Tool has really changed the game for FAFSA® completions at our school."
"In a world full of unnecessary complications, Going Merry is a breath of fresh air."
