New FSA ID to replace Federal Student Aid PIN effective May 10, 2015

The Department of Education will implement a new method for logging onto all student and borrower based websites on May 10, 2015. The effected sites include FAFSA on the Web, NSLDS Student Access,,, and the TEACH Grant website.

Users will select their own username and password. After implementation, the new FSA ID will be the only method for logging on to these sites, replacing the four-digit Federal Student Aid PIN.

Beginning in mid-April, information about this transition will be posted on each of the impacted websites. There is nothing that students/borrowers will be required to do prior to the date of implementation. Students and borrowers that attempt to access the PIN website after May 10, 2015 will be directed to a link
to register their new FSA ID.
