If you have already submitted your 2024-2025 FAFSA, below is a short list of what you can expect in the coming weeks.

Communication from the Department of Education

  1. Students will receive an email informing them that their FAFSA form has been fully processed and their FAFSA information has been sent to the schools they listed on their form.
  2. Students who applied using the online FAFSA form will receive an email that they can access their FAFSA Submission Summary by logging in to using their FSA ID and password.
  • Students will be able to make corrections to their FAFSA once their eligibility has been calculated and an ISIR (Institutional Student Information Record) generated. Students may view their eligibility calculation by logging back into their account.
