FSA ID to replace Federal Student Aid PIN!

Please note that beginning May 10, 2015 an FSA ID will "replace" your FAFSA PIN as the way to confirm your identity when accessing your financial aid information through certain U.S. Department of Education websites (Fafsa.gov, the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) Nslds.ed.gov, StudentLoans.gov, StudentAid.gov, and Agreement to Serve (ATS) teach-ats.ed.gov). When logging into these websites, you will be required to enter your FSA ID username and password, Only. Below you will find steps to follow in order to create your FSA ID. Please also visit Studentaid.gov for more information regarding the FSA ID process.

How to create an FSA ID:

  • When logging into one of the websites listed above, click the link to create an FSA ID.
  • Create a username and password, and enter your e-mail address.
  • Enter your name, date of birth, Social Security number, contact information, and challenge questions and answers.
  • If you have a Federal Student Aid PIN, you will be able to enter it and link it to your FSA ID. You can still create an FSA ID if you have forgotten or do not have a PIN.
  • Confirm your e-mail address using the secure code, which will be sent to the e-mail address you entered when you created your FSA ID. Once you verify your e-mail address, you can use it instead of your username to log in to the websites.
  • Review your information, and read and accept the terms and conditions.

You can use your FSA ID to sign a FAFSA right away. Once the Social Security Administration verifies your information in one to three days, or if you have linked your PIN to your FSA ID, you will be able to use your FSA ID to access the websites listed above. For help, visit StudentAid.ed.gov. Please see Financial Aid Webpage for mor information.
