What is an FSA ID?
An FSA ID is comprised of a username and password that you create. Your FSA ID allows you to access your federal student aid information online, and is used to log in to many U.S. Department of Education (ED) websites, including FAFSA on the Web, NSLDS Student Access,,, and the TEACH Grant website. Your FSA ID must be kept secure and never shared with anyone.

How do I get an FSA ID?
If you do not already have an FSA ID, you can Create an FSA ID here.

What if I forget my FSA ID username?
If you have an FSA ID but do not remember your username, click Forgot Username.

What if I forget my FSA ID password?

Can I change my FSA ID?
You can change your password by visiting Edit My Account. Your FSA ID username cannot be changed. If you think the security of your FSA ID has been compromised, you must change your password.

How do I update my FSA ID account information?
It is important to keep your information up-to-date. Go to Edit My Account to update your FSA ID e-mail or mailing address.

What happens if I enter my FSA ID Username and Password and no data appears?
If you have received Title IV loans and/or grants, there can be several reasons that no data appears. It takes your loan holder 30 to 45 days to get the information into NSLDS. If more than 60 days have passed since you received your loan, contact the school's financial aid office that processed your loan. They can tell you why your loan or grant has not been reported to NSLDS.-->
