If the certification process results in a change in the expected family contribution (EFC), the student will be notified via a missing information letter to send the Pell Grant Student Aid Report (SAR) back to the processor for corrections. Once the corrected copy of the Student Aid Report is received by the Office of Financial Aid, the student will be notified by an updated award letter. Awards are credited to an eligible student's account after the certification process is completed and appropriate adjustments have been made.
