Latest from FSA: Reminder of Valid Signature Rules for Printed FAFSA Signature Pages

March 21, 2019

FSA recently posted a reminder to financial aid administrators of the rules and requirements for assessing the validity of student and parent signatures on paper signature pages. This information has been provided to augment the guidance that financial aid administrators provide to applicants and their parents as they complete the FAFSA.

FSA’s reminder notes, “A valid signature requires a minimum of a title, first name or initial, and a last name. Acceptable signature examples for an applicant or parent named “June H. Brown” include Mrs. Brown, June Brown, J.H. Brown, J. Brown, or J.H.A. Brown. The only exception is when the student or parent only has a first name or last name and indicates this in writing on the signature page. “

For more information, including background, details on invalid signatures, and additional signature options, check out FSA’s reminder.
