  • If you haven’t already, complete your 2020-21 FAFSA at FAFSA.gov using 2018 income tax data.
  • Expect a Student Aid Report (SAR) via an email link.
  • You might receive a verification notice from the college(s) you listed on your FAFSA.
  • Watch for financial aid award notifications.

Watch your email and student portal carefully for important details about admission and financial aid.
