When the Department of Education receives the FAFSA, they will process the application. You can check the status of your FAFSA application at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Furthermore, Federal student aid applicants will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) as a result of filing the FAFSA. Review the information on the SAR for accuracy and to be sure the University of South Alabama was listed as a college to receive your FAFSA results.
If USA was listed on the FAFSA and the FAFSA was completed correctly, the University should receive the application results electronically. The Financial Aid Office will then begin corresponding with the student.
