    • Look for a letter or email from the federal (FAFSA) processor confirming submission of the FAFSA. The letter is NOT your award notification, it is just letting you know your FAFSA has been processed. Award offers are sent by the college once your file is evaluated.
    • We upload FAFSA's from the federal processor twice each week.
      Update email Make sure to update your preferred email and check it regularly.
  2. After we upload your FAFSA (or WASFA), look for an email from us letting you know to check the your Financial Aid ctcLink Portal. We will load the TASK TILE with To-Do items, such as forms, documents, or processes that are needed to complete your file.
