Complete the FAFSA/Pin
All Saint Peter’s students who are US Citizens or permanent residents are required to file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) every academic year. Non-resident aliens including F-1 International students are exempt. The FAFSA is the U.S. Department of Education’s financial aid application form. This form is used to determine eligibility for institutional, federal and state aid programs i.e., PELL, SEOG, TAG and EOF as well as federal loan programs. When completing the FAFSA, be sure to include Saint Peter’s University, Title IV School Code 002638, in the school section.

Federal Student Aid ID website
Effective May 10, 2015 the FAFSA PIN has been replaced by the FSA (Federal Student Aid) ID. The FSA ID consists of a username and password that allows you to access Federal Student Aid websites in order to view information specific to yourself and sign electronic documents and applications.
If you previously had a FAFSA PIN, you can link your previous PIN to your new FSA ID. This allows you to use your FSA ID immediately. If you never had a FAFSA PIN, you can use your FSA ID right away to sign the FAFSA, but you will have to wait as long as 3 business days for the Social Security Administration to verify your information before you can use your FSA ID for other purposes.
Who needs an FSA ID? If you are applying for financial aid then you will need an FSA ID. You can sign up for one at anytime, you don’t have to wait until you begin the financial aid process. If you are a parent of a dependent student you must have your own separate FSA ID in order to sign your child’s FAFSA.
