How will I receive my PIN?
It depends. You will select your own delivery method when you submit your request on the PIN Web site, or while completing a FAFSA on the Web application.
Your options include:
- Select your own PIN (this option only appears when you apply for a new PIN or request to change your PIN).
- Instantly view your PIN online.
- Receive an e-mail with the PIN immediately. This e-mail will contain a link to our secure PIN delivery Web site where you will be able to input your personal data and retrieve your PIN online. For security purposes, this link will be available for only 14 calendar days.
Note: If you don´t use the PIN Web site to apply for your PIN [for example, you apply for a PIN by submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)] you will automatically receive your PIN electronically if you provide a valid e-mail address.
