You need to start by entering the student’s Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID, username or with your verified email address and the FSA ID password. The applicant can also use his/her name, date of birth or Social Security Number. Remember that you are not supposed to use dashes, spaces, hyphens, commas, etc. while putting in the numbers, only digits are preferred with the FAFSA.

What is a save key?

After you have logged in, you will be asked to create a save key. If you have the save key, then you can return to the FAFSA for correction, or you can save the work as it is and resume working on it later. You can also share the access with your parents for correction or additional information with the help of a save key.

Note- the save key should be between 4 to 8 characters and you need to use the right combination of numbers,  and uppercase and lowercase alphabets

You will be redirected to the FAFSA tips after completion of the initial step. Here you can find the answers to the Frequently Asked Questions. You can click next to continue.
