How can I make corrections to my FAFSA?
When using our preparation and filing services, you can review your application and make any necessary changes to it before submitting it to us. Once you have submitted our checkout page for payment of our service fee, we will promptly prepare and file your FAFSA application to the Department of Education (ED).
After that point, wait to receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) before attempting corrections. The SAR will be received via e-mail typically within one to five business days of you providing the ED with your required signature(s). After receiving the SAR, follow these steps to correct your FAFSA information:
- Go to the log-in page at https://fafsa.ed.gov/FAFSA/app/fafsa .
- Log in with the student's first name, last name, Social Security Number, and date of birth.,/li>
- On the next screen, click Make FAFSA Corrections.
- It will then ask you to enter a Federal Student Aid ID number. You can get an FSA ID at https://fsaid.ed.gov if you don't already have one.
Often simple mistakes can be avoided by using a FAFSA preparation service knowledgeable in completing the FAFSA.
