August 17, 2007, Newsletter Issue #29: Information Needed To Complete The FAFSA

Tip of the Week

When completing your online application for financial aid the first time, there are a number of items that you should have available, including:

1. A PIN number assigned by the Department of Education. This acts like your signature verification and allows you to complete the entire process completely online. If this is your first time completing the FAFSA and you donít have one yet, you can apply for one at the same website and wait to complete your FAFSA until you receive the PIN.

2. Your social security number.

3. Your driverís license number.

4. Information from your previous year federal tax return.
