Please Note: If you are a student or parent user, you must contact the Office of Financial Aid at the institution the student attends for assistance. These articles are for school use only, they are not intended for student or parent use/help.


For schools who have SSO for their students (student accesses StudentForms through the school portal and uses portal username and password), the student must create a pin to e-sign their documents.


The Create my E-Sign PIN link is at the bottom of the review and sign screen on the student's web form that they are completing in StudentForms. The first time that a student e-signs a web form, they must create an e-sign pin to sign electronically. The student always has the option to opt out of e-sign, print, sign and upload the form.


The student must provide the following required information:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Date Of Birth
  • Social Security Number
Please note: Information must match information exactly as it appears on the student's FAFSA/ISIR, the same as when a student is registering their account.


The student creates a 5 digit number for a pin and confirms the 5 digit number. The student then selects create.



Once a pin has been created, the student is redirected to the review and sign screen. The student is able to enter their 5 digit pin to e-sign their document. The create e-sign pin link changes to a Forgot your E-Sign PIN? link once the pin has been created.



Please note: The student will always have the option to opt out of e-sign.


For information about how the student resets their e-sign pin please seeĀ Student - Reset E-Sign PIN
