Subject: Notice of the Draft 2015-2016 Federal Student Aid Application Materials

Draft versions of the proposed 2015-2016 application forms used by individuals applying for federal student aid, including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) and the Student Aid Report (SAR), are available for public comment. Only public comments regarding the FAFSA and related forms should be submitted during this comment period.

The federal student aid application process is required to collect and process the data necessary to determine a student’s eligibility to receive Title IV, HEA program assistance. The application process begins with an applicant submitting a FAFSA to the Department of Education. After submitting the FAFSA, the applicant receives a SAR, which is a summary of the data the applicant submitted on the FAFSA. The applicant reviews the SAR, and if necessary, makes corrections or updates to the submitted FAFSA data.

Interested persons may review and comment on the draft application materials by selecting Docket ID number ED-2014-ICCD-0126 at or by linking to!docketDetail;D=ED-2014-ICCD-0126.
