FAFSA name mismatch but still processed?

Ok, so I finished the Fafsa and it says it was successfully processed but there is a mismatch with my name (Maiden) and what is on the tax returns. What do I do? We got a SAR and such, do I leave it with the schools or some other place?

This answers the question I asked on the Ask Me thread. The mismatch may or may not be an issue with the schools. If they do ask, you will need to prove that you are the person on your tax return. The school will tell you what information to provide. Don’t worry - it is pretty easy to resolve.
