Do my parents have to be with me when I complete my Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)?
Your parent(s) will generally need to be with you in order to provide answers to some of the questions on your FAFSA. They will also need their PIN number in order to sign it or will need to physically sign the signature page. However, they do not have to be with you in our office in order to receive assistance in completing your portion of the FAFSA.
