Student Aid Index (SAI)
Your SAI number within your FAFSA Submission Summary is an index number that colleges use to determine how much financial aid you're eligible to receive. Your SAI is calculated according to a formula established by law and the information from your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
If there’s an asterisk next to your SAI, it means your student aid report requires further verification.
Data Release Number (DRN)
A Data Release Number (DRN) is a four-digit number given to your application by Federal Student Aid. You can provide your DRN to a customer service agent if you need certain changes made to your FAFSA information. Do not give your DRN to anyone other than a financial aid administrator or customer service agent.
The loan summary on your FAFSA Submission Summary is where any of your outstanding federal student loans will be listed.
You’ll have the chance to correct any information that was wrong on your FAFSA.
