The FAFSA form must be signed by the student. If the student is a dependent student, then a custodial parent must also sign the FAFSA form. The student is dependent if parents are needed to provide their information on the student's FAFSA form.
The easiest and fastest way to sign the FAFSA form is to do so electronically, using the federal PIN number. The student and custodial parent must have their own PIN numbers.
To request a federal PIN number, visit www.pin.ed.gov and follow the instructions.
If your original FAFSA report was not signed, you may make a correction to your FAFSA to add a signature.
If you have difficulty in receiving a federal PIN number or it appears that the PIN is not working, please call Applicant Services at 1.800.557.7394.
