Things you should know about the FASFA:

If you did not supply an email address you will receive a paper SAR within seven to 10 days. If you have not received your SAR within this time, check your application status.Once received, review the SAR and if corrections are needed contact the Financial Aid office at St. Luke's College.If there are no corrections needed, keep the report for your records. St. Luke's College will receive your information electronically.
  • Upon acceptance to St. Luke's College and receipt of your SAR, the financial aid department will begin processing your information and may ask for additional information, such as federal income tax returns.
  • After St. Luke's College has processed your financial aid information you will receive an award letter that explains the financial aid available to you.Review this award letter very carefully and make sure you understand the terms of the awards offered.
  • If you intend to take out student loans, additional applications and/or promissory notes may be needed. Your award letter will reflect any loans you qualify for and the amounts you are eligible to borrow.
