Free Application for Federal Student Aid

 

Create a Federal Student Aid ID

Before beginning the FAFSA, the student will need to create a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID).  This is created online at  https://fsaid.ed.gov   The student will be asked to create a Username and Password.   The parent whose signature will be used to submit the FAFSA, will also need to create their own FSA ID.  Please note that the FSA ID has replaced the 4 digit PIN used in previous years to sign the FAFSA.  Parents will no longer be able to use an existing PIN.
