What will your college grade level be when you begin the 2020–21 school year?
This is question 29 on the paper Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form.
This question can’t be left blank.
Select your grade level in college from July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021. If you’re currently a senior in high school or will be a first-time college student, select “Never attended college/1st yr.”
“Grade level” doesn’t 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 isn’t enrolled full-time will require more years than a full-time student to reach the same grade level.
