More information for students without a Social Security Number
An FSA ID can be used to access personal records as well as to electronically sign a FAFSA. Your FSA ID must be associated to a valid Social Security Number (SSN) in order to access personal records and to sign a FAFSA electronically.
Without a valid SSN, you will receive a paper Student Aid Report (SAR) when your FAFSA is processed (7-10 days).
If your FAFSA is missing a signature, you or your parent may sign it by printing a signature page or signing your SAR. You must mail the signature to Federal Student Aid for processing using the mailing address on the signature page.
If you need to correct your FAFSA, you must enter corrections on your paper SAR, or contact the financial aid office at your college for assistance.
