Notes from FAFSA.gov: 

  • If you provided an e-mail address on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you will receive an e-mail with a link to an online copy of your SAR.
  • If you did not provide a valid e-mail address on your FAFSA, the Social Security Number you included in your FAFSA did not match the one on file for you with the Social Security Administration, or you did not sign your FAFSA, you will receive either a SAR or a SAR Acknowledgement via postal mail. Typically, you will be able to access your SAR within two weeks of filing your FAFSA.
