Updating a fafsa
What kinds of changes can I make to my FAFSA Most information cannot be updated because it must be accurate as of the day you originally signed your FAFSA form.For example, if you spent some of your savings after filing the FAFSA form, you may not update your information to show a change in that amount.If you indicated on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) that you "will file" your 2017 IRS income tax return, you must follow these steps after completing your taxes: This will prompt a review, and possible revision, of your financial aid award.
Note: No more than 10 schools may be listed on your FAFSA form at one time.The information is also given to your state’s higher education agency, along with any other agencies in states to schools which you’ve applied.That’s because many states have financial aid funding they award based on your FAFSA information.Information will be transferred from the IRS directly into the FAFSA with this option.We recommend printing the “FAFSA on the Web” submission confirmation page as proof of completion. One of the most commonly requested documents is a tax transcript. If you have any FAFSA filing questions, you can contact FAFSA customer service agents at 800-433-3243, get online help or you can check out Federal Student Aid’s You Tube Channel for short, informational videos on the process.
