2. Apply for a PIN
In order to fill out your FAFSA (Free Application for Student Aid), you must apply for a PIN (Personal Identification Number). The PIN number allows you to sign your FAFSA electronically as well as go to other government websites to retrieve your personal information. For the dependent student, the student and one parent must have a PIN number. Please keep your PIN with your other important papers, as you will use it throughout your college career.
