2020-2021 US DoE FAFSA Codes For Non-US Schools

FAFSA Codes For Non-US Schools

One thing I have gotten used to doing in June and July is checking up on 529 college savings plans, especially on the list published on the US Department of Education website on the FAFSA Codes For Non-US Schools. I noticed that the link for the earlier year’s page no longer works, and this one seems to cover both schools coded for the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years.

In the following screenshot, I ran a quick search of schools in the state of “Foreign Country” and the city of “Hong Kong”, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) was the only local university that came up. For parents and students looking for universities outside the United States, I am impressed by how much better the online information is now than when I was a student comparing schools.
