After You Apply
The federal government will process your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and will electronically send the results to the Financial Aid Office at Kettering College, provided you listed Kettering College of Medical Arts as one of the schools to receive the results of your FAFSA.
You also will receive notification that your FAFSA has been processed in the form of a Student Aid Report (SAR). If you filed your FAFSA online and provided a valid email address, you will receive your SAR online. If you filed your FAFSA online and did not provide a valid email address, you will receive a SAR Information Acknowledgement in the mail. Regardless of how you filed, you can call 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243) to request a paper SAR if necessary.
Please review your SAR carefully. The SAR will contain the information you reported on the FAFSA. If corrections are needed to your FAFSA information, the process is slightly different depending upon how you filed. If you are unsure how to make the necessary corrections to the FAFSA information, please feel free to contact the Kettering College Financial Aid Office for assistance.
If you have completed the FAFSA and the Kettering College Financial Aid Application, then you will be informed by the Financial Aid Office if any other documentation is necessary.
Some students will have their FAFSA information selected for a process called verification. This means that the Financial Aid Office must determine the accuracy of the data you reported on your FAFSA. If your SAR states that you have been selected for verification, please review our Verification Information link on this site.
An award letter detailing your financial aid package will be sent to you after all of your financial aid paperwork has been received and after you have been admitted to the college.
If we receive your Kettering College Financial Aid Application and the results of your FAFSA by the priority deadline of March 31, we will send you an award letter by approximately May 1. For those students not meeting the priority deadline, an award letter will be sent approximately one month after the financial aid file is complete. The time it takes the Financial Aid Office to process your financial aid paperwork varies throughout the year. During peak processing times (June-September), it may take longer than average for you to receive an award letter.
