You will get a success message if you enter the pin correctly.  If you are incorrect, you have 10 attempts before you are locked out.  The Registrar's office will have to reset your pin once locked, so it is best to confirm your pin with your advisor before that happens.  You can exit from the guide in the upper left and after your pin is reset, you can enter the agreement in the Task Tile and try again.
