Adding a College after submitting FAFSA

If I submit the FAFSA application to a few colleges, can I later add another one? If so, how is this done?

    Yes, wait til your FAFSA is processed and you receive an email saying your SAR is available. Log in to the FAFSA website and there will be an option to do corrections - you want the Add/Delete School Codes. Make the corrections and submit. You will receive another email after that is processed.

    How soon will the SAR arrive in average?

    hey, if i have more than ten colleges i am applying to, can i add colleges? because i called the fafsa number twice and they gave me two different answers. they didnt know what they were talking about.

    Jubles, sk8rmom answered that question. You will have to wait until the fafsa is processed before you can change your ten listed colleges. Keep in mind that if you make any other corrections, the colleges you delete of your submission will not get the new information.

    Wow i forgot to add all the colleges to my FAFSA. I only added one :(

    When will it be processed so I can add the other 12?

    So being processed and getting the SAR are not the same?
