What will your college grade level be when you begin the 2019-2020 school year?
This is question 29 on the paper FAFSA.
This question cannot be left blank.
Select your grade level in college from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. If you are currently a senior in high school or will be a first-time college student, select Never attended college / 1st yr.
"Grade level" does not mean the number of years you have attended college, but refers to your grade level in regard to completing your degree or certificate. A student who is not enrolled full-time will require more years than a full-time student to reach the same grade level.

|2nd yr. / sophomore|
|3rd yr. / junior|
|4th yr. / senior|
