Announcements


  • Deadline Approaching: 2014-2015 applications must be submitted by midnight Central Time, June 30, 2015, after which the 2014-2015 application will no longer be available. To make this change, FAFSA on the Web will be unavailable: Wednesday, July 1, from midnight through 4 a.m. CT.
  • We are currently experiencing high wait times for calls and chats at 1-800- 4FED-AID. If you need to speak with a customer service representative, you may wish to contact us between the hours of 4 and 7 p.m. ET when call and chat volumes are typically lower. If you have questions about the FSA ID, you can find the answers to frequently asked questions here.
  • The Federal Student Aid PIN was replaced with the FSA ID on May 10, 2015. The new FSA ID consists of a user-created username and password to electronically access personal information on Federal Student Aid Web sites, including FAFSA on the Web. You can use your FSA ID immediately to sign your FAFSA, but must wait for the Social Security Administration (SSA) to verify your information before you can use the FSA ID to create a renewal FAFSA, make corrections to your FAFSA, or view your SAR.
  • Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) to update your FAFSA with IRS tax return information. If you have already submitted a FAFSA and would like to use the IRS DRT, click Login to start a correction. Once in the FAFSA, navigate to the "Finances" section, where the option to use the IRS DRT displays for eligible students and parents. You must indicate that you have completed a Federal tax return to be eligible to use the IRS DRT.
