The Application Receipt Date is the date this particular student’s initial application was received by the FAFSA processing systems. If the initial application was a paper FAFSA, this is the date the processor received the document in the mail. If the initial application was an electronic transaction (FAFSA on the Web or FAA entered FAFSA/Renewal application), this is the date the server received the electronic FAFSA transmission. It is the same date that appears on the confirmation.
This date does not change from transaction to transaction.
