Help? FAFSA/Graduate PLUS? I already did this!


Help? FAFSA/Graduate PLUS? I already did this!
« on: July 21, 2007, 03:40:03 PM »
I did my FAFSA, my SAR got sent to my school, and my Staffords are all done and ready to be disbursed in August.  I had inquired about my Graduate PLUS application which was still pending on the Citibank website.  My school said they certified them all together in late July, so fine, I waited.

Now I received an email on my new school account (which I luckily logged into) saying that in order for them to certify, I need to fill out a FAFSA.  Hello?  Of course I did my FAFSA!  In February!  Am I missing something huge here?  Because this financial stuff does go over my head.

I emailed back and said I already did it and that I'd call in on Monday, but I thought I'd ask about this here before sounding like an idiot with the financial aid office.

It sounds like you did everything okay. 

Don't stress too much about it now, financial aid offices tend to be a little overwhelmed during the summer session (they have to have everything taken care of before classes start) and sometimes they send out automated e-mails.  Give them a call on Monday.
