Common FAFSA Errors

Common Errors on Financial Aid Applications

Most errors are made because those applying either do not carefully follow or do not understand the application instructions. While few errors will cause you to start all over, many errors will significantly delay the processing of either the FAFSA at the federal level, your award at the TTU level, or both. Please carefully read the instructions that come with the application. There are also additional FAFSA instructions provided by the Department of Education. If you do not clearly understand a question, please call your school. The few extra minutes could save you weeks of delays!
