TN Promise and FAFSA Submission and Completion Data
When students apply for the Tennessee Promise scholarship, they do so through the TSAC Student Portal. Each student creates an account with pertinent information to identify them in e*GRandS. e*GRandS then matches TN Promise applicants to their FAFSA records, which TSAC receives daily from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Federal Student Aid, beginning in late October.
New data is updated in e*GRandS every day, but there is usually a 3 day processing period between when a student submits the FAFSA and when the FAFSA filing date is visible in this report. If a student’s FAFSA filing date does not appear on your TN Promise report after 3 days, it may be because the FAFSA is still processing or the student used a different SSN on the FAFSA versus the TN Promise application. Contact your TSAC Outreach Specialist with any questions. Data visualizations on TNFAFSA Frenzy.Gov will be updated every 2 weeks.
Once a student completes a Tennessee Promise application, you will be able to see that student when you pull the TN Promise report in e*GRandS. This report provides student level data for your high school. Through this report you are able to determine which TN Promise students have filed their FAFSA and their FAFSA filing date. Review instructions for pulling the e*GRandS TN Promise report here.
In an effort to provide the most up-to-date data, data visualizations on TNFAFSAFrenzy.gov will display TN Promise FAFSA filing data ONLY through the TN Promise FAFSA filing deadline of February 1st. If you would like to review FAFSA filing data for all of your students please review the information about FSA FAFSA Filing Data below.
Federal Student Aid provides high schools with current data about their FAFSA submissions and completions so that high schools can track their progress and help to ensure that their students complete a FAFSA. To enable high schools to track their progress, FSA regularly updates estimates for the first 15 months of the application cycle and will cover October of one year through December of the following year.
This data includes the number of students (age 19 or younger based on an FSA determined cutoff date) who are first-time filers of the FAFSA. This report will not include student level data, i.e., it will not list students’ names, only the number of students.
FSA defines a senior as a student who is filing the FAFSA for the first time, is no older than 19, and who will have received their high school diploma by the start of the school year to which they are applying for aid.
