    Please Note: The 2018-2019 FAFSA is required for financial aid consideration during the fall 2018, winter 2019, spring 2019, and summer 2019 semesters. The FAFSA for the 2019-2020 year is now open!  The 2019-2020 FAFSA is required for financial aid consideration during the fall 2019, winter 2020, spring 2020, and summer 2020 semesters.

    Create an FSA ID

    The FSA ID - a username and password - has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in to certain U. S. Department of Education websites. Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. If you do not already have an FSA ID, you can create one when logging in to the FAFSA, the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), studentloans.gov, studentaid.ed.gov, and fsaid.ed.gov.
