What is a Student Aid Report (SAR)?

After you apply for federal student financial aid at fafsa.ed.gov, you'll get your FAFSA results in an email report within a few days after your FAFSA has been processed or by mail in a few weeks (if you filed a paper FAFSA.)

This report is called a Student Aid Report or SAR. Your SAR details all the information you provided on your FAFSA. If there are no corrections or additional information, the SAR will contain your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is the number used to determine your eligibility for federal student aid.
