Step Two: Follow Up
If you submitted your FAFSA online and provided an email address, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) via email within 72 hours. If you applied online but did not provide an email address, you will receive a SAR in approximately two weeks by mail. Students who completed a paper FAFSA may expect their SAR within 4 – 6 weeks. Your college will receive your information electronically from the US Department of Education and will use the information to determine your financial aid eligibility. It is your responsibility to review your SAR to ensure that the information is correct. Keep your SAR for your records.
The Financial Aid Office will review your application and notify you via your LACCD email if additional documents are required. You may also login to Student Information System to check your financial aid status. Note: all colleges within LACCD process financial aid files on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, it is very important that you respond to inquiries by the Financial Aid Office in a timely anner.
