How to file the FAFSA
Filing your FAFSA electronically speeds up turnaround time and helps eliminate errors.
In order to file online, you and your parent will need a PIN (personal identification number) to serve as your electronic signature. Visit www.pin.ed.gov to obtain your PIN before completing the FAFSA. If you do not have access to a computer, you may file a paper copy of the form.
You are required to place in your binder a copy of your confirmation email stating that the application was completed.
