New "In Review" Status for FAFSA

There's a new status for students who have successfully submitted their 2024-25 FAFSA.

The “In Review” status indicates that the FAFSA will be processed later in January. The U.S. Department of Education has said submitted FAFSAs won’t be processed immediately.

Once the FAFSA is processed, students will receive an email notification that they can review their FAFSA Submission Summary in their account.

The colleges which students list on the FAFSA will start receiving student data in late January or early February. Students should expect to receive financial aid offers later in the spring.
