Sign up for a FAFSA PIN before filling out a FAFSA application. Doing so avoids the time delays that would occur after applying for the FAFSA using actual signatures and sending it in via snail mail. Utilizing a FAFSA PIN reduces the amount of time taken for the application process. To apply for a FAFSA PIN, go to http://pin.ed.gov and select "Apply For A PIN" located in the left menu. Have on hand your social security number, email address and an easily remembered, but not obvious, four-digit number to use as your PIN.
After applying for and activating the FAFSA PIN, you will be able to use it to sign the FAFSA application only. Once the information supplied is verified by the Social Security Administration within one to three days, the FAFSA PIN can be used to access other student financial aid sites and to edit the student aid report.
