The federal processor analyzes your FAFSA information to determine an Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Based on a federally mandated formula, the EFC is the amount of support that you and your family are expected to provide for your educational expenses.The results of your FAFSA are reported to you in the form of a Student Aid Report (SAR). Review your SAR carefully. Make corrections to any information that is incorrect. Also, you may be asked to supply additional or supplementary information to our office.Our office will review an electronic version of your SAR to see if additional or supplementary information is needed. If additional information is needed, a letter along with the necessary forms will be sent to you through the mail.

After your FAFSA application is complete, our office will determine your award eligibility. Awards are based on an established cost of attendance (COA) and your expected family contribution (EFC). Before students can accept any federal financial aid, they must first complete the Financial Aid Office's Terms and Conditions. This document informs students of policies, eligibility requirements, and other important information. Students agree to the Terms and Conditions on RaiderNet. Instructions are included in the Award Notice sent by email to their MTSU email address. To view a copy of the Term and Conditions, click here.
