Federal PIN to FSA ID Conversion

Students, parents and borrowers must create a FSA ID. Your FSA ID is a username and password required to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education websites. Your current PIN will no longer function for login purposes.

View the How to Create a FSA ID guide for instructions. Only the owner of the FSA ID should create and use the account.

For further assistance, visit our FAD ID Conversion Assistance page, or instructional videos are available on youtube by searching 'FSA USER ID'.
