financial aid information
All seniors should have filed the FAFSA by March 1st to receive financial aid packages from the colleges of your choice. Here are some helpful hints in accessing your Student Aid Report (SAR) to view your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC)#.
Log in to: www.fafsa.ed.gov (it works best in Internet Explorer)
You will be given 2 options to view your SAR - PDF or HTML. Make sure your pop up blockers are turned OFF! Then click on the HTML button. It will require you to insert your pin #. It will then reroute you to your report, which you can then save in your files or print out for use.
Your EFC# is used in a formula by the colleges and scholarship committees to put together your financial aid packages. Every college may use it differently, and they do not share those formulas. You can request a meeting with financial aid to discuss your student's options regarding the aid offered and what is needed.
