Here’s how to get your PIN for your student loans.

You can go to the official “Federal Student Aid PIN Web Site” to start the process.

Click on the “APPLY NOW” button.

The first step is to apply for a PIN.  You’ll need to put in a lot of personal information and then either select a PIN (4 digit number) or one will be created for you.

The second step is to submit your PIN application.

You’ll need to promise not to share it with anyone.

The final step is you’ll get a confirmation number.

Then once your information is verified, you can use your PIN at the locations listed here.
