This PIN is the same as the one you used for your FAFSA.<br />

This is simply a glorified check list making sure you completed the previous steps. Your anticipated graduation date is “After April 2011,” and the answers to the next three questions should be “Yes.” Make sure the selections are such, then click the Submit button.<br />
