Create an Account (FSA ID)

Whether you’re a student, parent, or borrower, you’ll need to create your own FSA account to complete federal student aid tasks.

What You Can Use Your Account For:

  • Filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form
  • Signing your Master Promissory Note (MPN) if you take a student loan
  • Applying for repayment plans
  • Completing loan counseling
  • Using the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Help Tool

Items Needed to Create an Account:

  • Social Security Number
  • Your own mobile phone number and/or email address

Site to Create an Account:  https://studentaid.gov/fsa-id/...


  • You will use this account for the rest of your life to manage your financial aid tasks
  • Be careful when creating your FSA ID to enter your name and Social Security number exactly as they appear on your Social Security card.
  • If you are a parent and you already have a FSA ID because you have an older child going to college or you have attended and have loans, you do not need to create a new account.  Each child must submit their own FAFSA but you use your same FSA ID to electronically sign them. 
  • Be sure to make note in a secure location, your FSA ID and password for future use.
