The Federal Student Aid Identification, also called the FSA ID, is the first step to completing your FAFSA. It is a username and password that students and parents create to access the FAFSA and electronically sign the form. Already have an FSA ID? The new FAFSA application is ready to go - click here to begin filling it out.

For Students and Parents with a Social Security Number click here and follow these steps:

  1. Click “Get Started”
  2. Enter Personal Information
  3. Create Username and Password
  4. Verify your Email Address
  5. Complete Challenge Questions
  6. 2-Step Verification
  7. Review and Submit
  8. Make sure to write down or take a picture of your FSA ID username and password as a reminder!
  9. Repeat the process to have your parent create an FSA ID, too! They will need to input their information and a separate email address.

To ensure ongoing access to your email account beyond high school, please avoid using your school email address. Instead, create and use a personal email address, such as one from Gmail or Yahoo, to guarantee continued access to your account after graduation.

Remember to securely store your username and password for future reference. You can either save this information on your cell phone or in a safe location to ensure easy access when needed. Never share your username or password.

Can I edit my FSA ID? Yes. If your personal information
changes or you would like to update anything on your account, you can make changes by logging in at and selecting “settings” under your account information.

What if I forget my FSA ID username or password? You
can retrieve your username or reset your password by having a secure code sent to your phone/email. You may also answer your challenge questions, but this option comes with a 30-minute waiting period before you can use your account again.
