FAFSA correction processed, but SAR not updated

LumenatrumLumenatrum 2 replies2 postsRegistered User New Member
So I made a housing status mistake on my FAFSA that severely affected my aid. I made a FAFSA correction (on Aug 6) to change this, and it listed as Processed near immediately; however, when I look at my updated SAR, it has no college listed at all now. I talked to a FAFSA agent, and they were of no real help, but they said it changed on their end with the new updates I made. Whenever I asked if it was actually processed, they didn't give a definitive answer. Can anybody tell me what's going on?

How do I know if my FAFSA actually updated? Why has my SAR randomly dropped my school listing (on my end).

    Call your college and see if they got the update. That is really what matters, right?

    When did you do this update? It sometimes takes a few days for it to actually process.

    I made the correction on the 6th, but my college told me they saw no update as of yesterday. I'm just wondering why it says processed if it isn't.

    Are you able to log into that updated FAFSA to see for yourself if the info has changed. When did you look? Make sure that your college is actually listed.

    When I log in and click "view SAR" it shows me an SAR that has no college listed. The FAFSA rep said it's listed on their end, but gave no reason as to why I can't see it on mine. I've been checking every day.
