Apply for Aid
STEP 2 – Get a PIN
Apply for a Federal PIN at www.pin.ed.gov (if you don’t already have one). You will need this PIN to electronically sign your FAFSA. If you are a dependent, your parents will also need to get a PIN at www.pin.ed.gov to electronically sign the FAFSA. This will ensure the quickest, most accurate filing process. In addition, your PIN will allow you to:
- View the status and results of your FAFSA application on the FAFSA web site.
- Make corrections to your FAFSA on the web site.
- Access your Federal Student Financial Assistance information on the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) web site.
- Make address corrections to a Direct Loan account, calculate a repayment schedule, and get interactive counseling on deferment or forbearance for any Direct Loans on the Direct Loan Servicing web site.
- Complete Loan Entrance & Exit Counseling.
- Sign your Direct Loan Master Promissory Note.
- Request a duplicate of your Student Aid Report (SAR).
