After I File My FAFSA

Federal Student Aid Processing Center will process your application and send you a Student Aid Report (SAR) containing an official Expected Family Contribution (EFC).  The EFC is used to by your school to determine your eligibility for federal student aid and make an electronic copy of your SAR available to the schools you've listed on your FAFSA. 

Now What Happens?

FAFSA Follow-Up allows you to Check the Status of your FAFSA, Print Signature Page, View and print your Student Aid Report (SAR), make corrections, or add/delete a school code.

You may check the status of your application at any time.

View and Print Your Student Aid Report
You can view your SAR once we have received all required signatures and processed your FAFSA or correction form. Note: you must have a PIN to view your SAR.

Make Corrections to Your  Processed FAFSA
If you find you've made a mistake after submitting your FAFSA, you will have to wait until after it has been processed to make corrections. Corrections can be made online through Corrections on the Web. Note: you must have a PIN to correct your FAFSA data online.

Add or Delete a School Code
If you want to add or remove any of the school codes that you listed on your FAFSA, you will have to wait until it has been processed. Note: you must have a PIN to add or delete school codes.
