Students who are eligible for and applying for federal financial aid and parents who are required to be listed on the FAFSA need to create FSA IDs.
To create an FSA ID at you’ll need:
- Your social security number (if you have one). .
- Your date of birth.
- Your full legal name (written exactly as it appears on your social security card).
- An email address you have access to.
- A mobile phone number (optional).
A social security number, mobile phone number, and email address can only be associated with one FSA ID. This means you can’t make multiple accounts for yourself, and if you share an email or phone number with someone, only one person can use that information to create an FSA ID.
