Apply for your PIN, your personal identification number, at www.pin.ed.gov. A PIN lets you apply, “sign” your online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and make corrections to your application information. Both the student and a parent (if the student is dependent) must apply for a PIN number to use as your electronic signature.
Safeguard Your PIN and Remember It!
Complete the FAFSA online by going to www.fafsa.ed.gov. A FAFSA must be completed for EACH school year. The school year consists of Fall, Spring and Summer terms. It is to your advantage to complete the FAFSA each year as soon as you complete your taxes for the previous year. Some state funds are on a first come first serve basis.
You must complete the FAFSA and submit all needed paperwork by the Financial Aid Priority Date.
