Complete the NJ State Application for Financial Aid.
At the end of the FAFSA application, there is a link to redirect you to the state application (HESAA) to answer additional questions for state aid consideration.
If you closed the window or can’t find the link, visit the HESAA website and click on “Report Additional Information for State Aid.”
Review your Student Aid Report (SAR).
The SAR is a copy of what you reported on the FAFSA. You will receive an email when it is ready to be viewed online. Please check for any mistakes. If you made a mistake, you may log back onto FAFSA to make a correction.
The SAR will tell you if you were selected for verification. If so, check your email regularly for additional requests for information.
Submit any missing documentation.
Log on to NEST to see if you’re missing any forms.
We will email you reminders if we require any additional documentation or forms.
Please submit this information ASAP to the Financial Aid office.
If you estimated your tax information on the FAFSA, please use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to submit your updated tax information.
