Applying for Federal Aid

Additionally, the University of California created a tutorial to help students fill out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Click HERE to view it.

Getting a Personal Identification Number (PIN)

Prior to completing a FAFSA online, we recommend that you obtain a PIN# if you haven’t already done so. A PIN# is YOUR electronic signature and is good for the next 10 years. Each person who would normally sign the FAFSA will need a PIN# which can be obtained by going to: www.pin.ed.gov. A PIN# can be obtained at anytime and takes only minutes to complete the process.
