Student's E-mail Address

Previous

This is question 13 on the FAFSA.

The student's e-mail address is used to send information to the student regarding the status of his/her financial aid application. It is used to send confirmation that the electronic application has been received and to send a notification once the application has been processed and a Student Aid Report (SAR) has been generated.

The student's e-mail address must follow the rules below:

  1. Only one "at" symbol (@) allowed.
  2. The first character cannot be an "at" symbol (@); for example, @domain.com.
  3. Before the "at" symbol (@):
    • At least one valid character must be present.
    • Only letters, digits, hyphens, underscores, and periods (all ASCII range 33-126 except for: <>()[]\,;:"@^).
    • Periods cannot be first, last, or adjacent to another period
  4. After the "at" symbol (@):
    • At least one valid character must be present.
    • Only letters, digits, hyphens, underscores, and periods (all ASCII range 33-126 except for: <>()[]\,;:"@^).
    • Hyphens, underscores, and periods cannot be first, last or adjacent to a period.

Note: Some e-mail systems differentiate between uppercase and lowercase letters. The response to this question should match the e-mail address recognized by the student's e-mail provider.
