Here are some web sites to help your college planning process.

This site will take you to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This site has instructions on filling out the application, and includes deadlines. Parents and students must register and get a PIN at www.pin.ed.gov to apply for the FAFSA.
This Web site is your source of information for the Federal Student Aid PIN.
Your PIN can be used each year to electronically apply for federal student aid and to access your Federal Student Aid records online. If you receive a PIN, you agree not to share it with anyone. Your PIN serves as your electronic signature and provides access to your personal records, so you should never give your PIN to anyone, including commercial services that offer to help you complete your FAFSA. Be sure to keep your PIN in a safe place.
