What Can A PIN Do For Me? Why is it Needed to File the FAFSA?
In order to complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) on the web, both the parent and the student will need a PIN (personal identification number) from the Department of Education. Your PIN will be your unique identifier, as well as your signature on the FAFSA.
Please click immediately below on the link to start the PIN process. It will take less than five minutes to complete. You will need to supply your name, social security number, date of birth and mailing address. Your PIN will be mailed to you within 10 business days and will be good for a lifetime.
Your PIN will gain you access to the following other websites of interest:
