Signing and completing your FAFSA

Once you have answered questions about your finances, you will be asked to sign and submit your FAFSA, along with your parent if you are a dependent student.

Be sure to have your FAFSA PIN ready and use exactly the same information you used on Step 1. Also ensure that you answer No to the question "Are you a preparer?" as this specifically refers to financial consultants, FAFSA preparation services, and other financial professionals.
