Completing the FAFSA

FAFSA Resources

The Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID)

The FSA ID is used to login at where a student can complete their FAFSA, as well as review or complete other financial aid related documents. Student FAFSA filers, as well as one parent of undergraduate students who must report parental data on their FAFSA, need their own unique FSA ID.

  • Carefully follow the instructions when creating or editing your FSA ID.
  • Each FSA ID must be unique; thus, a different email address must be used when each family member creates their own FSA ID.
  • URGENT 1: This is not a place where you want to have a typing error, especially when entering your Name (as it appears on your Social Security Card), Date of Birth and Social Security Number!
  • URGENT 2: No one should ever create an FSA ID for another person (this is clearly stated in the FSA ID instructions)!
  • Additional FSA ID information
