What is a PIN number?

In the context of federal student aid, PIN stands for the Federal Student Aid Personal Identification Number. Prior to May 2015, a Federal Student Aid PIN was used to access personal information and digitally sign on various Department of Education websites. In May 2015, the PIN system was replaced by the FSA ID system.

For more information on the FSA ID, please see the FAQ entitled What is an FSA ID.
