Have questions about the FSA ID or FAFSA?
File as soon as possible
Filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step to receiving financial aid. We recommend filing your FAFSA as soon as possible.

To complete the FAFSA, all students need an FSA ID--a username and password used to access FAFSA.gov. Additionally, if parent information is required on the FAFSA, one parent will also need his/her own FSA ID.

We'll guide you through the process
We're hearing lots of questions this year regarding the FSA ID. If you need assistance with your FSA ID or FAFSA, come to one of FAME's free In-Person FAFSA Help sessions. Every session is staffed with a financial aid expert to guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have. Find and register for an event near you:
