NEW Federal Student Aid PIN

The U.S. Department of Education has implemented the FSA ID, a new log-in process that improves the security and customer experience for the student- and borrower-based websites, including FAFSA on the Web, NSLDS Student Access,,, and the TEACH Grant website. The new FSA ID, which is comprised of a user-selected username and password, replaces the Federal Student Aid PIN as the process by which students, parents, and borrowers authenticate their identity to access their federal student aid information.

Users who arrive at the impacted websites are directed to a link to register for their new FSA ID. The registration process should take less than 7 minutes. Only the owner of the FSA ID should create his or her account.
