Verify My FAFSA e-sign

How to e-sign your Verify My FAFSA documents


back to navigating Verify My FAFSA main page

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.

NOTE: Students and Parents must both either e-sign or print the hard copies of the documents and sign them. You cannot have one person e-sign and the other person(s) do a hardcopy signature.
