RE: Final 2003-2004 Student Aid Report (SAR) and SAR Acknowledgement Mockups

We are pleased to provide you with the final 2003-2004 Student Aid Report (SAR) and SAR Acknowledgement dated 12/30/02.

The overall format of the 2003-2004 SAR has not changed from the 2002-2003 format. The color of the SAR is yellow. The SAR will continue to be in a letter format and will provide instructions about the student’s eligibility status, verification requirements and information on how to correct any assumptions made during processing.

We have however, made the following enhancements:

·        Increased “VA Benefits” field

·        New “Date of Marital Status” field

·        E-mail address is numbered and can be corrected

·        Student’s ID barcode added

·        DRN moved to bottom left hand corner of SAR to eliminate confusion with EFC

·        Added information about where to get Worksheets A, B, and C on the Web if student needs to correct these items

·        W-2 line references added to questions

·        Revised statement at bottom of page 1 to tell the student to read the important information on page 2, and then go to page 3 to see what they need to do next

·        Statement added to page 2 that student must update their answer to question 35 if drug conviction status changes

The order of the data elements is the same as the order on the paper 2003-2004 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Also, the FAA information section will continue to allow the Financial Aid Administrator to find every relevant piece of information about a student’s eligibility in one place.
