I submitted my Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA; what happens next?

After you submit your FAFSA form online, you can check its status immediately. (Note: Only the student can check the status.) If you submitted a paper , you can check its status after it has been processed (roughly 7–10 days from the date mailed). You can also contact the Federal Student Aid Information Center to find out if your FAFSA application was processed.

Review your Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR is a summary of the FAFSA data you submitted. You will get your SAR within three days to three weeks after you submit your FAFSA form. Look over your SAR carefully, make sure you didn’t make a mistake on your FAFSA form, and make corrections to your FAFSA data if necessary. 

Your FAFSA information is shared with the colleges and/or career schools you list on the application. The Financial Aid Office uses your information to figure out how much aid you may receive at that school. Note: The school might also have other forms for you to fill out to be considered for school aid, so monitor your Workday account and TCC Outlook email during the financial aid process for further actions you may need to take. 

An email will be sent to your TCC Outlook email address if you are awarded financial aid.
