ABOUT VERIFY MY FAFSA E-SIGN

Verify My FAFSA now gives you the ability for you and your parents (if you are a dependent), the opportunity to electronically sign (e-sign) your Financial Aid documents instead of having to print them out and sign them. In order to do this, you will need to set up a PIN number which will be used in place of your hardcopy signature on the documents. You can also decide to not e-sign at any point.   Click here for E-sign procedures for Students and Parents
