Mapping Your Future: New name coming for a student's FAFSA report


New name coming for a student's FAFSA report

Beginning with the 2024-25 FAFSA, students submitting the form will receive a FAFSA Submission Summary.

The new FAFSA Submission Summary will replace the Student Aid Report (SAR). Although the FAFSA Submission Summary and SAR have different names, the purpose of the two are primarily the same. The FSS does have a more descriptive name of its purpose – which is a summary of all the information submitted on the student’s FAFSA.

However, just like the SAR, the FAFSA Submission Summary will need to be reviewed by students to make sure that all the information submitted is accurate. If the information is not accurate, the student can make corrections or updates to the FAFSA.
