Step Three

Review your Student Aid Report (SAR)

-- About a week after you file your FAFSA you will receive an email from the U. S. Department of Education with a link to your SAR

-- Your SAR is a summary of all the answers you put on your FAFSA.

-- Review your SAR carefully for any mistakes

-- If you find mistakes, you will go back to the FAFSA website & make a correction to your application

-- Your SAR will also have comments about your answers and will tell you if your application was chosen for verification

Tip

DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP

Mistakes on your FAFSA could cost your hundreds or even thousands of dollars in financial aid.  Don’t let this happen to you.
