What is a DRN in regard to a fafsa loan?
Not financial advice: DRN stands for Data Release Number. This 4-digit code is assigned to your specific FAFSA application and will be needed by a financial aid representative if you need to make any modifications to your FAFSA application, such as your mailing address, phone number or email address.
You can locate your SRN on the upper right corner of the Student Aid Report, which summarizes the information you provided on your FAFSA and will include an explanation of your Expected Family Contribution. It is important that you keep your DRN private, and only provide it to a financial aid administrator or customer service representative.
If you need help with your FAFSA, you can always call 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243).
