Applying For Financial Aid - What is a PIN and How Do I Get One?
Both you and your parents have the option of using a PIN to electronically sign the FAFSA. If you are a dependent student, your parent must sign the FAFSA as well. To determine dependency status, visit the FAFSA website. Failure to sign your FAFSA will result in delay of processing and may result in loss of aid.
PINs can be requested at http://www.pin.ed.gov. In addition to signing your FAFSA electronically, your PIN allows you to:
- review and correct answers on your processed FAFSA.
- print a copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR).
- view information regarding your federal loans and grants via NSLDS (National Student Loan Data System).
