What is the FAFSA

  1. Begin your FAFSA process by creating a FSA ID at It’s your personal code for submitting the FAFSA when you’re ready. Your FSA ID will give you access to FSA online systems and can serve as your legal signature.
  2. Submit your FAFSA as soon as possible. Federal student aid applications can be submitted starting October 1 at Federal financial aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, so know your deadlines and apply as early as you can to maximize your financial aid.
