Who needs to sign when I correct my FAFSA® form?

Your signature is always required. When making corrections to your online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form, you must electronically sign your FAFSA form using your FSA ID.

If you're a dependent student and you don't correct any of your parents’ information, then a parent isn't required to sign your corrected FAFSA form.

If you're a dependent student and you do correct your parents’ information, then a parent is required to sign your corrected FAFSA form.

If your parent's signature is required and he or she didn't already sign your corrected FAFSA form, you can do the following:

  • Log in to the online FAFSA form.
  • Select the "Provide Signatures" button.

Your parent should follow the instructions provided on the page to sign your corrected FAFSA form with an FSA ID. If your parent chooses to sign with an FSA ID and doesn't already have an FSA ID, he or she can create an FSA ID. Your parent must have a Social Security number to get an FSA ID.

If your parent chooses not to apply for an FSA ID, he or she can print a signature page, sign it, and mail it to the address provided.
