In the past month, EFC PLUS has issued two financial aid alerts regarding the FAFSA and DRT. We had recommended that you submit your FAFSA manually. I wanted to clarify this statement. A manual submission is to submit the FAFSA electronically without using the DRT link process, at this time. You are able to submit the FAFSA by just inputting your numbers into the FAFSA.
We were proactive in our announcements this year due to the delays and problems the DRT caused last year. We are still hopeful that the issues will be resolved in the FAFSA DRT link. Here are the links to the two warning that we issued.
FAFSA DRT Alert 1 – Single filing parents
FAFSA DRT Alert 2 – Data feed error for student DRT usage
