Applying for Aid: Full-time Students

Step one Step two Step three Step four Step five step six Step seven


Step 1 - Create a FSA ID

Create a Federal Student AId (FSA) ID (if you don't already have one). You will need this FSA ID to electronically sign your FAFSA. If you are a dependent student, one of your parents will also need to create a FSA ID in order for them to electronically sign the FAFSA.

Your FSA ID will also allow you to:

  • View the status and results of a processed FAFSA application on the FAFSA on the Web site.
  • Make corrections to your FAFSA on the Web.
  • Access your Federal Student Financial Assistance information on the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) Web site.
  • Make address corrections to a Direct Loan account, calculate a repayment schedule, and get interactive counseling on deferment or forbearance for any Direct Loans on the Direct Loan Servicing Web site.
  • Complete Loan Entrance & Exit Counseling.
  • Sign your Direct Loan Master Promissory Note.
  • Request a duplicate copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR).
