Who needs to sign when I correct my FAFSA?

Your signature is always required. When making corrections to your FAFSA online, you must sign electronically with your FSA ID.

If you are a dependent student and you do not correct any of your parents’ information, then a parent is not required to sign your corrected FAFSA.

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

If your parent’s signature is required and he or she did not already sign your corrected FAFSA, you can do the following:

Your parent should follow the instructions provided on the page to sign your corrected FAFSA with an FSA ID. If your parent chooses to sign with an FSA ID and does not 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.
