• Note — if your parent’s tax information is not available
in early January, you may use tax returns from the year
prior, along with current W2s, to estimate financial
figures on your FAFSA. See the section of this
document titled “How to apply for financial aid” for
more information.
• In completing the FAFSA, you will be asked if you (and
your parent if you are a dependent student) wish to
apply for federal PIN numbers. You are encouraged to
do so. Your federal PIN will allow you to electronically
sign the FAFSA as well as other financial aid documents
such as student loan promissory notes. Please keep
your PIN number in a safe place for future reference —
you will need it to file your FAFSA each year that you
apply for aid.
