Making FAFSA® Corrections

Making FAFSA® corrections is as easy as logging into your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) and updating the information by clicking on “Make FAFSA® Corrections.” You can correct errors, update your mailing or email address, add schools, or submit additional information as needed.

 

Acceptable Changes to the FAFSA®

Most of the information listed on the FAFSA® is related to your financial and personal circumstances the day you signed the application, but there are some cases in which you will need to make corrections or add new information. When completing your FAFSA® make sure to double check that your Social Security Number (SSN) is the correct one, since you will no longer be able to change your SSN.

After you submit your FAFSA® you will receive a Student Aid Report(SAR), which will give you some information about your eligibility for federal student aid.
