Common FAFSA Question

What do I do if I submitted the FAFSA but Midland College has no record of my FAFSA report?
Sometimes there is an error on either the FAFSA or the ApplyTexas form which causes a delay in Midland College receiving the FAFSA. If you feel that this is the case, please contact a Financial Aid advisor. They can help diagnose the problem so we can move forward.
