Problem / Issue

Colleges and the Chancellor's Office want the Tech Center to pre-populate the FAFSA application - which would cover all requirements for the Promise Grant (BOG) application. 

Proposed Solution

After quick review of the online FAFSA, the amount of data fields included are extensive. Account information could be merged (like we currently do in the Apply and Promise Grant application) but most of the FAFSA application data fields would not be populated.

Full scope of requirements and fields would be necessary to do a high-level development estimation. Initial review shows a XXL t-shirt sizing.
