Review & Verification
Student Aid Report
The Student Aid Report (SAR) contains the information you reported on your FAFSA. If you file the FAFSA electronically, you will receive your Student Aid Report electronically.
When you get your SAR, review it carefully to make sure it’s correct and complete. We will use your information to determine your eligibility for federal — and possibly non-federal — financial aid. We might ask you to verify the accuracy of the data you provide on the FAFSA, so you need to be sure the information is accurate.
Correct any errors you find by logging into your account on fafsa.gov and on the “My FAFSA” page, select “Make FAFSA Corrections.”
If you don’t have any changes to make to the information listed on your SAR, just keep it for your records.
Verification & Additional Information Requests
About 30% of FAFSA applications are selected for a verification process each year.
Based on the results of your FAFSA, we might need to collect additional information and/or documents from you to finalize your aid for the year. Many types of aid cannot be credited to your student account until all application requirements are satisfied. Respond to any request for information within 15 days.
