Approximately 3 - 5 business days after submitting the FAFSA, students who provided an e-mail address will receive an e-mail from the U.S. Department of Education with a link to their Student Aid Report (SAR). You can review all of your answers to make sure your SAR has correct information. It is also important to read the SAR comments to determine if additional documentation is required.
