Seniors, if you have filed your FAFSA, here is what you can expect.  If you are going to a college or trade school and haven't filed a FAFSA, you need to get that done ASAP.
  • Expect a Student Aid Report (SAR) via an email link. The SAR acknowledges that your FAFSA was received and lets you know if you need to take further action before the form can be processed.
  • You might receive a “verification” notification. The college(s) you listed on your FAFSA may contact you requesting documents to verify information you included on your FAFSA. You must provide those documents before your financial aid can be processed.
  • Watch for an award letter from the college(s) you listed on your FAFSA. This will detail the types and amounts of financial aid they are offering you. You must have been accepted for admission before the college will send an award letter.


It’s critical that you watch your email and/or student portal carefully to ensure you don’t miss important information about admission and financial aid.
