Students and a parent can register for a pin number for financial aid. Go to www.pin.ed.gov for PIN information and registration. It is very important to keep a folder of your information and remember your passwords. You will need your social security number to complete this information. The pin number is the electronic signature on the financial aid process. The sooner you get your form completed and sent, the better!!
Go to www.fafsa.ed.gov to fill out your FAFSA financial aid forms. This will be based upon 2009 tax information. Assistance is available at financial aid offices as well as at College Goal Sunday in February (see to the right).
