Yes, it's pretty normal for it to take a couple of days for the information to be processed. However, that's just the federal end of it. The feds will give you an estimate of your aid, but it is the school that does the actual awarding because your aid can be affected by a number of factors, such as whether you are enrolled full or part time. It may take weeks, or even months, for you to receive your actual financial aid package from the school.

Yeah. It usually takes FAFSA a week or two to get transferred to the school. There might be a few other things that the school requires as well, such as the W2 form and the SAR form. But those are not too bad. My best guess would be to check if the college has a checklist of things that needs to be submitted so there is no hassle. Also, call up the school to make sure everything checks out. Good Luck!
