We submitted 3 rounds of FAFSA with different college lists (lists #1, #2, #3) in Nov, Dec and Jan. We used the IRS DRT tool.
EFC is $78K.
Also submitted CSS profile, tax returns and w-2s.
We received an email 4 days ago saying that FAFSA processed the correction made by a college. We compared the updated SAR with our SAR version and there is one change. Field 92a (Parents payments to tax deferred pensions retirement savings) was empty in our version and college filled it with the right amount. The same field appear in CSS profile as well and we filled in there but somehow missed in FAFSA. The EFC is increased to $98K.
The updated SAR has the list #2 colleges on it, so should be one of the colleges from that list.
Will all the colleges from the 3 lists have the updated SAR? If not, do we have to send them?
We have 2 acceptances from list #1 and we got unsubsidized loan, which we are not planning to take anyways, if committed. Do we have to update these colleges as well or just talk to the college after we commit?
We checked the college portals and 2 of them (from list #2) was already updated the Fafsa received date as 2/11.
Will colleges consider updated date as the submitted date?
Is there a way we can find out which college made the change?
Is there anything else that we need to do?
Greatly appreciate any insights. Thank you so much.
