The office of Federal Student Aid at the U.S. Department of Education will send you a Student Aid Report (SAR), which is a summary of the FAFSA data you submitted. The SAR should arrive within three weeks after you submit your FAFSA. The SAR does not tell you how much financial aid you’ll get. Instead, the school(s) on your FAFSA, the school will calculate your aid and will send you an aid award letter.
