My FAFSA says it is “In review” on the studentaid.gov site, what should I do? 

Your FAFSA will not be processed by the Department of Education until mid-March. This means that MIT will not receive information about your FAFSA until mid-March at the earliest. If we anticipate that you are eligible for federal aid it will be estimated on your financial aid award.

Your FAFSA will appear as “In review” (meaning it has not been processed) in your studentaid.gov account and no corrections can be made until it is processed. You will receive an email once it is fully processed, letting you know that your FAFSA information has been sent to MIT.
