When logging into certain Department of Education (ED) websites you may have previously used a PIN number to access personal information. Starting May 2015, a security update was made to require students, parents and borrowers to use an FSA ID to access financial aid information. An FSA ID is a username and password that identifies you as someone who has the right to access personal information on ED websites. The FSA ID will replace the prior PIN system of identification.


Learn more about the FSA ID on the Department of Education’s website or create your FSA ID now.
