What is an FSA ID?
An FSA ID is a username and password that you must use to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education (ED) websites. Your FSA ID identifies you as someone who has the right to access your own personal information on ED websites such as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov.
The FSA ID replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN on May 10, 2015. If you haven't logged in to a Federal Student Aid site since May 10, you will need to create an FSA ID before you can log on in the future.
What will I need to create an FSA ID?
Financial aid applicants will need:
- Date of Birth
- Social Security Number
- Mailing Address
- Email Address
- Telephone Number
What if I forgot my FSA ID?
If you have forgotten your username and password, don't worry. On log-in pages where it is required, you will find links that give you the option of retrieving them through your verified email address or by successfully answering challenge questions.
Can the Student Financial Aid office access my FSA ID for me?
No, your FSA ID cannot be accessed by a Student Financial Aid representative.
Who can I contact if I have any other questions?
