For those students and families who are struggling with the new login process for all of the Federal Student Loan websites, including the FAFSA, that the Department of Education has implemented, please read on.
The new Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID, will include a username and password and will replace the Federal Student Aid PIN as the process by which students and parents confirm their identity to access their federal student aid information.
Without the FSA ID for both the student AND custodial parent, you cannot submit a FAFSA.
I would be happy to work with those who need help to get through this new process, which can be facilitated by following the six simple steps below.
STEPS TO CREATE THE FSA ID:
PLEASE NOTE:  A unique FSA ID must be completed for each student and for one custodial parent. Both the student and parent should follow the same steps to create their FSA ID’s.
The FSA ID process consists of six main steps.
Go to    https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm
and click on tab to Create An FSA ID.
Step 1: Create an FSA ID
Provide your email and a unique username and password.  (Please note that a separate email address must be used for each FSA ID)
You will need to verify that you are at least 13 years old
Step 2: Personal Identification Information
Provide your Social Security Number, Date of Birth and Name.
If you have a Federal Student Aid PIN, you will be able to enter it here and link it to your FSA ID.  You can still create an FSA ID if you have forgotten or do not have a PIN.
Step 3: Verify and Enter Profile information
Provide your email and a unique username and password.  (Please note that a separate email address must be used for each FSA ID.  You will need to verify that you are at least 13 years old
Step 4: Challenge Questions and Answers
Provide the challenge questions and answers to the 5 challenge questions.
Step 5: Review Information and Agree to Terms and Conditions
Review Information
Agree to the terms and conditions
Step 6: Verify Email
Confirm your email address by using the security code sent to your email.  (By verifying your email address, you can use your email as your username when logging into certain Department of Education Websites.)
Once the FSA ID’s have been created for both the student and custodial parent, the family can then make changes to their FAFSA.
