Upon completing an application, you will be asked a variety of personal questions pertaining to your financial status as well as which school you plan on attending. If you provide all of the information and required signatures, you will receive your SAR. Your SAR will contain information such as your expected loan amount as well as your data release number. This information is essential to help determine how much Federal Aid money you are eligible for.


When filling out your application you will need some information from such items as your social security card, a driver’s license and any W-2 forms from a previous year. The school you plan to attend will make the final decision on how much federal aid you are awarded per semester.
