Families of high school seniors:
Completing the FAFSA will require using your tax information. Many scholarships and other forms of financial assistance require this application to be completed prior to distributing funds. Deadlines for specific post-secondary programs and financial assistance opportunities vary.
HOW TO CREATE AN FSA ID
The FSA ID ― a username and password ― has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education websites. Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. If you do not already have an FSA ID, you can create one when logging in to fafsa.gov.
Step 2: Create a username and password, and enter your email address.
Step 3: Enter your name, date of birth, Social Security number, contact information, and challenge questions/answers.
Step 4: If you have a Federal Student Aid PIN, you will be able to enter it and link it to your FSA ID. You can still create an FSA ID if you have forgotten or do not have a PIN.
Step 5: Review your information, then read and accept the terms and conditions.
Step 6: Confirm your email address using the secure code, which will be sent to the email address you entered when you created your FSA ID. Once you verify your email address, you can use it instead of your username to log in to the websites.
