The FSA ID, which consists of a user-created username and password, replaced the PIN effective May, 2015.  It allows users to electronically access personal information on Federal Student Aid Web sites as well as electronically sign a FAFSA.

On the “Login” page:

Select Enter your (the student’s) FSA ID to enter your username and password.  Only the student should log in with an FSA ID.


Select Enter the student’s information to enter the student's name, Social Security Number and date of birth.  (You may have to enter your FSA ID later in the process).
