What is a signature page?

The signature page is a document that is generated by the online Free Application for Federal Student (FAFSA?) form. It includes your student ID, name, address, the type of application you completed, and a randomly generated identification number.

You can sign your FAFSA form by printing, signing, and mailing a signature page. However, the application process is faster if you use your FSA ID to sign your FAFSA electronically, and you must use an FSA ID to sign a Renewal FAFSA or corrections to a FAFSA form. You may also call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243) to request a copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR) which can also be used to process a signature.

When a parent signature is required, your parent can print, sign, and mail a signature page if he or she does not want to sign electronically with an FSA ID.

For the 2020–21 school year, the signature page should be mailed to:

Federal Student Aid Programs
P.O. Box 7652
London, KY 40742-7652

For the 2019–20 school year, the signature page should be mailed to:

Federal Student Aid Programs
P.O. Box 7656
London, KY 40742-7656

By signing and submitting the signature page, you agree, if asked, to provide information that verifies the accuracy of your completed FAFSA form. This information may include a copy of your U.S. or state income tax form. If you utilized the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, you certify that the U.S. income tax form that you filed with the IRS is true and complete to the best of your knowledge and you agree, if asked, to provide information that will verify the accuracy of your income tax return form. Do not mail income tax forms with the signature page.

By signing the signature page, you also certify that you:

  • will use federal student aid funds received during the award year covered by this application solely for educational expenses related to attendance during that year at the institution of higher education that determined eligibility for those funds;
  • are not in default on a federal educational loan, or have repaid or made satisfactory arrangements to repay the loan if you are in default;
  • do not owe an overpayment on a federal educational grant, or you have made satisfactory arrangements to repay that overpayment;
  • will notify your school if you do owe an overpayment or are in default; and
  • understand that the secretary of education has the authority to verify income reported on this application with the Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies.

If you purposely give false or misleading information, you may be fined up to $20,000, sent to prison, or both.
