Student Aid Report (SAR)

The Student Aid Report (SAR) is a paper or electronic document that gives you some basic information about your eligibility for federal student aid and lists your answers to the questions on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You obtain this from the FAFSA website.

For the 2019/2020 Scholarship cycle, we will require the 2019/2020 Student Aid Report reflecting your full name and EFC score

  • The SAR can be downloaded as a PDF from the FAFSA site after you submit your FAFSA application.

Log in to by entering your student credentials and accepting terms.

You will be taken to My FAFSA 2019-2020.

You will see the status of your application. Under that are links provided, select:

"View or Print your Student Aid Report" (click ok when prompted)

You will be taken to your 2019-2020 Electronic Student Aid Report (SAR)

You will "Print this page" and select "Save as PDF" as your printer option

Or View Student Aid Report (PDF) and then download the file. (If you receive an error, we recommend printing to a PDF)

If all else fails, print it to paper and either scan it or take a photo of page 1 with your EFC Score and name noted. 

  • Please do not send us links to the FAFSA site where you are viewing your SAR, for your security FAFSA does not allow us to access your information.
  • Please do not send us links to download the file (ex. Dropbox, google docs, etc), we will not open links to external sites.

All applicants are required to apply for the FAFSA and submit it to your school. Our deadline is in line with the FAFSA deadlines and there should be no problem submitting your FAFSA and obtaining the Student Aid Report corresponding to the application cycle by the post mark deadline. Note that it is not required you accept any aid offered by your school or that you qualify for aid in order to be considered for our scholarship, we only ask that you submit the application.
