Applying for Aid: Part-time Students

Step one Step two Step three Step four Step five step six Step seven

Step 1 – Get a PIN

Apply for a Federal PIN at (if you don't already have one). You will need this PIN to electronically sign your FAFSA. If you are dependent, your parents will also need to get a PIN at to electronically sign the FAFSA. This will insure the quickest, most accurate filing process. In addition, your PIN will also allow you to:

  • View the status and results of a processed FAFSA application on the FAFSA on the Web site.
  • Make corrections to your FAFSA on the Web.
  • 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 copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR).
