Step 1: Obtain FSA ID

Obtain a FSA ID

The FSA ID process consists of three main steps:

  • Enter your log-in information.
    Provide your email address, a unique username, and password.

An email address can be associated with only one FSA ID.


  • Enter your personal information.
    Provide your Social Security Number, name, and date of birth.
    Include your mailing address, email address, telephone number, and language preference. For security purposes, provide and create answers to five challenge questions.


  • Submit your FSA ID information.
    Agree to the terms and conditions.
    Verify your email address. (This is optional, but helpful. By verifying your email address, you can use your email address as your username when logging into certain Department of Education websites. This verification also allows you to retrieve your username or reset your password without answering challenge questions.)
