• If you get an error saying that your FSA ID information doesn’t match the information provided on the FAFSA form, here’s what you should do. Note: This is often the result of mixing up the student and parent FSA ID. • We recommend signing the FAFSA form with an FSA ID because it’s the fastest way to get your child’s FAFSA form processed. However, if you and/or your child are unable to sign the FAFSA form electronically with an FSA ID, you can mail in a signature page. From the sign and submit page, select “Other options to sign and submit” and then choose “Print A Signature Page.” Just keep in mind that your child’s FAFSA form will take longer to process if you go this route. • If you have multiple children who need to complete the FAFSA form, you can use the same FSA ID to sign FAFSA forms for all of your children. You can also transfer your information into your other children’s applications by choosing the option provided on the FAFSA confirmation. However, you can only do this when you are in the parent role.
If you have multiple children in college, you can also transfer your information into your other children’s applications by choosing the option provided on the FAFSA confirmation.
Congrats, you completed the FAFSA form! Your child is one step closer to getting money for college. Now that the hard part is over, learn what your child should do next after submitting the FAFSA form.
