Can I add schools after I submit FAFSA?

Postby mattviphky » Wed Feb 15, 2012 1:56 pm

I've never done FAFSA before, so I think I might have made a mistake. I only added 3 schools, and I had planned to add more later. But when I submitted, it said that my information had been sent, and it no longer gives me the option of adding schools. After it finishes sending everything, am I able to add schools to my list?

Yes, just go back to fafsa.gov and click to amend it.

How long ago did you submit your fafsa? I believe a few days after submission you'll get an email "Fafsa Results..."-- after that you can log in and find the "corrections" link to add schools.

Pretty sure you have to wait until your FAFSA is accepted before you can go back and amend it.
