What is a Personal Identification Number?
The PIN serves as your identifier to let you access your personal information in various systems. It's like the Personal Identification Number that you get from your bank that enables you to access your account. Because your PIN serves as your electronic signature, you should not give it to anyone.

I have 2 PIN numbers. Which one do I use?

The FAFSA (or Federal ) PIN number

It is a the personal identification number that is mailed to all students who complete either a paper FAFSA or an electronic FAFSA (FAFSA on the Web).

You and parents (if applicable) can use it to electronically sign your FAFSA, students and parents (if applicable) must each have a PIN. If you do not have or forgot your PIN, go to the PIN Site to obtain one.

Parents and first-time financial aid applicants may also apply for a PIN prior to submitting a FAFSA. When applying for the first time your name, date of birth, and Social Security Number (SSN) will be sent to the Social Security Administration (SSA). If the information you provide does not match with the SSA, you will not be able to receive a PIN.
What else do you use a FAFSA PIN for?
  • To make corrections to your processed FAFSA.
  • To obtain a copy of your processed FAFSA information on the Web
  • To access and complete your Renewal Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The National Student Loan Data System Web site: View a history of the federal student financial aid you have received.

The Direct Loan Consolidation Web site: Your PIN will enable you to track the processing status of your online Consolidation Loan application throughout the entire consolidation process from application receipt to booking with Direct Loan Servicing.

You may also E-sign your Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Master Promissory Note.
