The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) provides more than $150 billion in grants, loans and work-study funds each year.
Administered by Federal Student Aid, which is part of the U.S. Department of Education and the largest provider of student financial aid in the nation, FAFSA gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school.
Visit the Federal Student Aid website now to begin the free and easy FAFSA application and to get some great tips on how and why to apply. Or, contact Student Financial Services for more information.

You can make corrections at the FAFSA website. Select “Make corrections to a processed FAFSA.” If you have the paper Student Aid Report (SAR) that was mailed to you once the FAFSA was processed, you may make corrections on the SAR and return it to the Federal Processor, as listed on the SAR. DO NOT send SAR corrections to our office.
You must complete a new FAFSA using the correct information. You may not submit corrections to the SSN using the SAR or online.
You do NOT have to submit a new FAFSA. The FAFSA is good for the entire academic year. You should contact Student Financial Services, however, so we are aware of the change in your plans.
Marital status cannot be updated during the financial aid award year for which you’ve already submitted the FAFSA. When you file the FAFSA for the next academic year, you should indicate your proper marital status at that time.
This correction can be made online at the FAFSA website or by submitting the correction to the Federal Processor by mail on the paper SAR.
You must add USJ on your FAFSA. Call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1.800.433.3243 to add USJ’s school code (001409) as one of the six schools. You can also make this correction at the FAFSA website by choosing “Add or Delete a School Code.” Please do not send in your Student Aid Report as it will not be used to process your financial aid and will be returned to you by mail. All FAFSA information must be received electronically from the Federal Processor.
