FINANCIAL AID: FILLING OUT THE FAFSA
WHAT IS AN FSA ID?
The Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID is the code that the US Department of Education uses to identify you online. It allows you to electronically sign the FAFSA to speed up the process, check the status of your FAFSA and make corrections to your personal information online. It is critical that you keep your FSA ID private as it allows you (or someone else) to sign federal documents and access confidential information. Both the student and their parent need a separate FSA ID.
Students and parents can create an FSA ID online at fafsa.ed.gov and clicking on “FSA ID” at the top of the page. You will need to submit your name, date of birth, social security number, and have an email address to verify your information. Questions? Call: 1-800-4-FED-AID. This is a free process. Be sure to use the government web address to ensure you will not be charged for this service: www.fafsa.ed.gov
What you will need to fill out your FAFSA:
• Social security number
• Your drivers license number, if you have one
• Your W-2 forms
• Your federal income tax returns
• Your current bank statements and records of stocks, bonds and other investments
