• FSA ID – Have you created one? The FSA ID ― a username and password ― has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education websites and is needed to complete and submit your FAFSA. Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. If you do not already have an FSA ID, you can create one when logging in to fafsa.ed.gov or by going to fsaid.ed.gov. It may take up to 3 days for your FSA ID to be valid, so plan accordingly. For more information about the FSA ID and how to create one, check out this informational video.
