Student Aid Report (SAR)
The Student Aid Report (SAR) is the report sent to you that summarizes the information included in the FAFSA. The SAR also includes the EFC, the amount of Federal Pell Grant eligibility, if any, as well as any eligibility issues that may need to be resolved.
When the JCCC Financial Aid Office receives your SAR, the office will begin evaluating your data.
If you provide an e-mail address on your FAFSA, your SAR will be sent to that e-mail address. Otherwise it will be sent to your mailing address listed on the FAFSA.
If you haven't received your SAR within three to four weeks of submitting your FAFSA online, call the processor at 1-800-4-FEDAID to make sure that your application was received and is being processed.
When you get your SAR, review it for errors. If you need to make corrections, refer to the student aid report corrections.
Your application may be selected for income verification. If that happens, you'll need to complete a series of additional steps. If the JCCC Student Financial Aid Office needs more information or documentation from you, you'll be contacted by student e-mail. You can also check your requirements online. Additional documents the office may need might include:
- Copies of federal tax forms
- Verification worksheets
