Applying For Federal Student Aid

Get a PIN

Before beginning the FAFSA, you should apply for a U.S. Department of Education personal identification number (PIN) at www.pin.ed.gov. The PIN will allow you to sign your FAFSA electronically to correct your processed FAFSA information online. After you receive the PIN assigned to you, we recommend you change it to something easy to remember.

Gather The Information Required To Apply

  • Your Social Security
  • Your driver’s license number, if you have one
  • Your alien Registration Number, if you are not a U.S. citizen
  • Federal tax information or tax returns, including W-2 information, for yourself, and for your spouse if you are married, using records for the year prior to the academic year for which you are applying
  • Records of untaxed income, such as Social Security benefits, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and veterans benefits, for yourself and information of savings, investments, and business and farm assets for yourself

Complete Your Application at WWW.FAFSA.ED.GOV

Enter all necessary information. If you need help, there are help links on each page of the online application.

Submit Your Application

After you submit your application, make sure you receive a confirmation number. This number tells you your application has been successfully submitted. Keep this confirmation number for your records.

Follow-up On Your FAFSA

Your application will be processed and you will receive an e-mail with a link to your Student Aid Report (SAR). If you did not provide an e-mail address, you will receive your SAR by mail. You should review your SAR for any necessary corrections or updates. If you do not hear from us within three weeks, go to www.fafsa.ed.gov and select: “Check the Status of a submitted FAFSA.”
