Student Aid Report (SAR)
The Student Aid Report, or SAR, lists the following:
- The information you gave on the FAFSA
- A dollar amount for your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which colleges use to determine your financial aid eligibility.
When it arrives
You should receive notification that your SAR is available within two weeks after you file your FAFSA. If you do not, check the status of your application by logging back in to StudentAid.gov or by calling the Federal Student Aid Information Center at (800) 433-3243.
What to do
- Review your SAR carefully.
- Provide additional information if asked.
- Follow the directions and correct any errors you find.
- Keep a copy for your records.
- Contact the financial aid office at each school to which you have applied to ensure they have what they need to process your financial aid package.
NOTE: The name of the Student Aid Report will change for the 2024-25 FAFSA year to the FAFSA Submission Summary (FSS).
