  • There is actually a spot on the FAFSA website that lets you "Check the status of a submitted FAFSA." It should just say that it was either approved or waiting on a signature.

  • Don't forget that is the holidays and a lot of places have shortened hours and most colleges are closed until Monday for the holiday break. It could be a simple thing as that. It could also be that you are missing information. Call on Monday or go on to the FAFSA website and check your status.
