Every college qualified to receive federal student aid has a separate federal school code. When these codes are entered on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, the student's FAFSA information is sent directly to each institution.
Students can look up school codes by visiting the school code search feature on the FAFSA website. Up to 10 colleges can be listed on each application, and at least one college must be listed to submit the form. If a student wants to send his information to more than 10 institutions, he can add more colleges after the FAFSA form is submitted.
