First Step to FAFSA: FSA ID

The FSA ID is a username and password combination you use to log in to U.S. Department of Education (ED) online systems. The FSA ID is your legal signature and shouldn’t be created or used by anyone other than you. You’ll use your FSA ID every year you fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form and for the lifetime of your federal student loans.

To create your FSA ID, you will need: Your social security number, a cell phone, and a personal email address.

Create Your FSA ID


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is a form completed by current and prospective college students in the United States to determine their eligibility for student financial aid. By completing your FAFSA you could be eligible for grants, work study, or federal student loans.
