Steps to File the FAFSA

  1. Complete the FAFSA online at Be sure to include the UD Federal School Code: 001431
  2. When filing your FAFSA on the Web, you will be encouraged to use the IRS DRT (Data Retrieval Tool), which allows the U.S. Department of Education to access your tax year data directly from the IRS, rather than having you provide the data. This will ensure the most accurate aid award for you and may satisfy the need for further tax information if selected for Federal Verification.
  3. After the FAFSA has been submitted, you will receive notification from the Federal Government in the form of a Student Aid Report (SAR). The Student Aid Report will contain your Expected Family Contribution and will also indicate your Pell Grant if eligible as well as Federal Direct Loans. Be sure to review this report and correct any errors that you may find.
