Need Access -- Resubmit After Taxes Filed?

Postby santoinettea » Sun Feb 27, 2011 12:38 pm

So I know that the FAFSA must be re-submitted once taxes have been filed (if they had not been at the original time of completion). Is this the same for Need Access? And if so, does it need to be by the school's finaid deadline?


Note: After sending my Need Access to 7 schools (UCLA, Cornell, Gtown, Columbia, Chicago, Michigan, NYU), I was emailed a "check-list" for each school. The only school that mentioned resubmitting with official numbers was UCLA.

(Also, although my taxes and my parents' were just filed, I'm not sure if today, Feb 27th, is the best day to resubmit, considering many students' forms are pouring in. I want to hear word on finaid info asap. Is there a lag in processing?)

One of my top schools financial aid offices told me that they would receive the NA more or less instantly after you submit it. hope that helps, don't know about the rest.

Thanks so much for your response! I read it last night and sent in my Completed NA immediately. : )
