News Flash

The new Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) has replaced the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) PIN, effective date May 10, 2015. This modernized login process improves security and the customer experience for student- and borrower-based websites, including FAFSA on the Web, NSLDS Student Access, StudentLoans.gov, StudentAid.gov and the TEACH Grant website. The new FSA ID will replace the Federal Student Aid PIN as the process by which students, parents and borrowers authenticate their identity to access their federal student aid information. This process will eliminate recurring use of the Social Security number. More information can be found at any of the websites previously mentioned.   

Current FAFSA

It is time to process the 2016-17 financial aid application. The Department of Education recommends students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid as early in the year as possible after Oct. 1 each year. Early processing may qualify students for state funding in addition to the award of any federal funds. Income estimates from 2015 will be used to process the FAFSA to meet state deadline requirements.
