If you've never set eyes on a Student Aid Report (SAR) before, it can be a dizzying experience. What do all those acronyms and numbers mean? It all looks so official and important. If you've recently submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) you can expect to receive a SAR in return. And while the SAR is long on data, it is rather short on detailed explanation. Keep reading for a demystification of this sometimes inscrutable document.Verification: If there is an asterisk next to your EFC, it means that your SAR has been flagged for verification. You will also be informed of having been selected for verification in the SAR Acknowledgement letter, which will be included with your SAR documents. Data Release Number (DRN): The DRN can be found on page 1, in the lower left-hand corner (upper-right corner of the electronic version). The DRN is a four-digit reference number. Loan Summary: You will find the loan summary on page 4, top half of the page. If you have any outstanding federal student loans, they will be listed on this page. FAFSA Changes: Changes can be made on pages 5 through 10. These pages give you a chance to correct any information that sent incorrectly the first time you filed your FAFSA. Pell Grant Eligibility: You will find Pell Grant eligibility on the SAR Acknowledgement letter, near the bottom of the text.
