The FSA ID is the username students and parents of dependent students will use to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
All contributors (ex: student, student’s biological parent and stepparent as applicable if the student is dependent, student’s spouse as applicable if student is independent, etc.) are required to create a FSA ID. Please note that parent or spouse contributors are not responsible for paying the student’s invoice. Instead, contributors are required to include their FAFSA on a student’s FAFSA to determine the student’s eligibility for financial aid, which includes federal aid, state aid, and scholarships. Learn more about contributors by watching this short video.
Creation of the FSA ID and password is a fairly straightforward process, so students and parents are encouraged to create their FSA ID and password at home before the 2024-2025 FAFSA becomes available in December 2023. Please only sign up for the FSA ID workshop if the student and/or parents need assistance creating the FSA ID and password.
Students and parents can create an FSA ID here. Please have your Social Security card available. You will need to have access to your mobile phone and/or email address in order to complete this process. Please keep your FSA ID in safe place because you will need to access this information every year for the FAFSA! More information about the FSA ID is available here.
