Applying for Aid: Full-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 www.pin.ed.gov (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 www.pin.ed.gov 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).
