FSA ID replaces Federal Student Aid PIN
The Department of Education has implemented a new username and password login system for student and borrower websites. Beginning May 10, 2015, the Federal Student Aid PIN will be replaced with an FSA ID. The new FSA ID is comprised of a user-created username and password for electronically accessing personal information on Federal Student Aid websites including FAFSA.gov, NSLDS.ed.gov, and StudentLoans.gov.Student and parents of dependents students can create the FSA ID here.
If you already have a Federal Student Aid PIN, you can link your PIN to your FSA ID and immediately access any of the websites that require an FSA ID.
