FAFSA access at the Library

Welcome to Sinclair Community College.

Guests and prospective students can use computers in the Sinclair Library to complete their FAFSA form.

  • Library and IT staff can assist in assigning you to a guest computer.
  • Please see the staff at the main desk.
  • You will need to show an ID.
  • There may be a waiting list if all guest stations are in use.

See instructions on the Sinclair web page How to Apply for Financial Aid. This is your best place to start.

Here are some of the key things to know:

  • You will need to have a PIN number (Personal Identification Number). To request a PIN, go to www.pin.ed.gov.  Parents also can request a PIN for themselves at the same site.
  • You may apply online at: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/
  • You will need to know the Sinclair school code, which is: 003119.
  • To complete the form, you need a lot of information.
    • You may want to fill out a FAFSA worksheet first: 2010-2011 FAFSA on the web worksheet.
    • There are documents you will need such as tax forms, social security and drivers license information. See what documents you will need before you start.
