Mailing Lists/Listservs

  • General

    We now mail all general publications, such as the Federal Student Aid Handbook, to the mailing addresses maintained on-line at our E-App for Schools site.Note that there is a special question asking where you would like to receive these publications - Question 13. If you leave Question 13 blank, we will send publications to the address that you listed for the"Financial Aid Administrator." The E-APP for Schools allows you to list publication mailing addresses for additional location as well as your main campus. Here are the complete instructions for updating your mailing address on-line.


    Subscribers to the FSATECH listserv can pose technical questions about Federal Student Aid systems, software, and mainframe products. Answers are researched by Federal Student Aid system developers and sent to everyone on the listserv.

  • FFELP School List

    This is a list of addresses used to mail communications and reports to schools that participate in the Federal Family Education Loan Program. Changes can be made by contacting theFinancial Partners Channel.
