The FSA ID is a username and password that is used to sign and submit the FAFSA. The FSA ID has the same status as a written signature and is used to sign legally binding documents electronically.
Who Needs A FSA ID?
Each student completing a FAFSA would need his or her own FSA ID. Dependent students will also need a parent to create an FSA ID. Parents can use the same FSA ID for multiple children. However, each user would need his or her own email address.
