Two common issues after you file the FAFSA: 

  • There is missing or incomplete information on your FAFSA. It’s important to fix this as soon as you can.
  • Your FAFSA information has to be verified by the colleges. You’ll need to provide additional information or paperwork to prove your information is true.
