  • The FSA ID is the replacement for the PIN, which was previously used to login to Department of Education websites and sign online Financial Aid documents such as the FAFSA or Master Promissory Note. 
  • When you sign in to any Department of Education website, such as www.fafsa.ed.gov, www.studentloans.gov, or www.nslds.ed.gov, you will be prompted to login using your FSA ID or to create a new ID and password. 
  • When applying for a new FSA ID, enter an e-mail address you will always have access to.  This can be used to reset your password.  All PIN’s should be linked to your new FSA ID.
