The SAR contains the results of eligibility and expected family contribution determinations, information that the student originally reported on the FAFSA, and information about the applicant's financial aid history from the Department's National Study Loan Data System. SAR recipients are expected to review the information on the SAR and (1) correct errors in the reported information, (2) update information that may have changed since filing the FAFSA, (3) verify the responses if so requested, and on the paper SAR, (4) correct illegible information, or (5) supply missing information.
