Sign and submit your FAFSA form You’re not finished with the FAFSA form until you (and your parent, if you’re a dependent student) sign it. The quickest and easiest way to sign your FAFSA form is online with your FSA ID. Note: If you (the student) logged in to the FAFSA form with your FSA ID at the beginning, you won’t need to provide it again on this page. But, if you’re a dependent student, your parent will still need to sign before you can completely submit.
Sign and Submit Tips:
• If you or your parent forgot your FSA ID username or password, you can retrieve it. • Make sure you and your parent don’t mix up your FSA IDs. This is one of the most common errors we see, and why it’s extremely important for each person to create his or her own FSA ID and not share it with anyone. • Make sure the parent who is using his or her FSA ID to sign the FAFSA form chooses the right parent number from the drop-down menu. If your parent doesn’t remember whether he or she was listed as Parent 1 or Parent 2, he or she can go back to the parent demographics section to check. • Here’s what you should do if you get an error saying that your FSA ID information doesn’t match the information provided on the FAFSA form. • If you have siblings, your parent can use the same FSA ID to sign FAFSA forms for all of their dependents. Your parent can also transfer his or her information into your sibling’s application by choosing the option provided on the FAFSA confirmation page.
The FAFSA form allows you to continue with state applications or for your parents to complete it for multiple dependents.
