TIP: When you submit your FAFSA, be sure to print out the confirmation page and keep it for your records. It contains a confirmation number with the exact date and time (Central Standard Time) the form was received. You can also choose to have a copy e-mailed to you if you have provided an e-mail address.DEADLINES: Check with your post –secondary school about their definition of an application deadline - whether it is the receipt date and time or the process date and time of the application. Federal Student Aid considers a FAFSA’s receipt date and time to be when the FAFSA/correction is submitted successfully. Transactions must be completed and accepted by midnight to meet the deadline. If you wait too long to submit your application and it is rejected, you may miss your school’s deadline.
