Student Aid Report

Your Student Aid Report (SAR) is a summary of the information you submitted in your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and indicates your official Expected Family Contribution (EFC).

You should expect to receive your SAR within a few days of electronically filing your FAFSA or within 2-4 weeks if you submitted your FAFSA by mail.


Reviewing your SAR

It’s important to have an accurate SAR. Your financial aid awards are based upon the information listed on it. Review it carefully. Compare the information listed on the SAR to a copy of your FAFSA. The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) listed on your SAR will determine the amount of aid you’ll receive.

If you believe any of the information on your SAR is incorrect, you can fix errors or update any changes in your financial circumstances using the Information Review Form on the back of the SAR or by going to the government’s FAFSA website.
