As of May 10, 2015, the FAFSA PIN has been replaced by the FSA ID. Instead of a 4-digit numeric PIN, you must create an FSA ID username and password to log in and sign your FAFSA at fafsa.gov, as well as to log in to studentloans.gov to sign the Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance or Exit Counseling, or log in to nslds.ed.gov to monitor the status of your federal loans.
Students and parents of dependent students need to create individual FSA IDs. Click here to create your FSA ID now. You will need to provide an active email address, your full name, date of birth, and social security number, as well as select your FSA ID username and password. The FSA ID can be used immediately to sign the FAFSA. However, it may take a few days before you can sign your MPN or Entrance Counseling. You may also link your new FSA ID to your old FAFSA PIN.
