Pop Quiz – Can a Student Add a School Code to the FAFSA After the End of the Award Year?

Question:

XYZ College has a student that attended during the 2016-17 award year, but failed to put XYZ's school code on the FAFSA form. The student would like to receive her Federal Pell Grant. Can she still receive it even though the award year has ended? 

Answer:

Yes, the student can add XYZ College's school code to the FAFSA. The deadline for corrections, including changing the institution on the FAFSA, is September 9, 2017. See Federal Register, 4/4/16.

If the student meets the criteria for a late disbursement [see 668.164(j)], the student may receive Pell Grant based upon the credits completed.
