Create a New FSA ID

An FSA ID gives you access to Federal Student Aid’s online systems and can serve as your legal signature.

Only create an FSA ID using your own personal information and for your own exclusive use. You are not authorized to create an FSA ID on behalf of someone else, including a family member. Misrepresentation of your identity to the federal government could result in criminal or civil penalties.

Crear credencial FSA ID

La credencial FSA ID le permite al usuario acceder a los sistemas de la Oficina de Ayuda Federal para Estudiantes (FSA, por sus siglas en inglés) y firmar documentos en esos sistemas.

Usted sólo debe crear una credencial FSA ID utilizando sus propios datos personales y para su propio uso exclusivo. No tiene autorización para crear una credencial FSA ID en representación de otra persona, aunque sea ésta un familiar. Cualquier falsificación de su identidad ante el Gobierno federal podría resultar en sanciones penales o civiles en su contra.

If you apply for financial aid, you may be offered loans as part of your school’s financial aid offer. A loan is money you borrow and must pay back with interest.

If you decide to take out a loan, make sure you understand who is making the loan and the terms and conditions of the loan. Student loans can come from the federal government or from private sources such as a bank or financial institution. Loans made by the federal government, called federal student loans, usually offer borrowers lower interest rates and have more flexible repayment options than loans from banks or other private sources. Learn more about the differences between federal and private student loans.


Your Federal loan history.

The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) is the U.S. Department of Education’s (ED’s) central database for student aid. NSLDS receives data from schools, guaranty agencies, the Direct Loan program, and other Department of ED programs. NSLDS Student Access provides a centralized, integrated view of Title IV loans and grants so that recipients of Title IV Aid can access and inquire about their Title IV loans and/or grant data.

Here’s your guide to repaying your federal student loans.

Find the right repayment plan for you, learn how to make payments, get help if you can’t afford your payments, and see what circumstances might result in a loan being forgiven, canceled, or discharged.
