Updating my fafsa

Rated 3.94/5 based on 730 customer reviews

You won’t be allowed to update every field on your FAFSA.

Here are some of the things you can update: Your college financial aid administrator can makes adjustments for students with special circumstances.

If you correct an error on your FAFSA (other than through the IRS Data Retrieval Tool) your FAFSA is more likely to be selected for verification.

Some types of FAFSA changes are officially called updates.

However, there are some instances in which you’ll want to (or be required to) change the information you reported.

You should speak to the financial aid office at the school you plan to attend if there will be a significant change in your or your parent’s income for the present year or if your family has other circumstances that cannot be reported on the FAFSA form.

You may update your mailing address, email address, and other contact information if it has changed.

Find the incorrect information, and write the correct information in the field next to it.

After you make all the necessary corrections, you (and your parent, if you’re a dependent student) should sign the SAR and mail it to the address listed near the signature line.
