Creating an FSA ID

The FAFSA is the single most important application a family can file to be considered for financial aid, and in order to submit it, you'll need to create an FSA ID. MEFA's Associate Director of College Planning Jonathan Hughes explains how to create your FSA ID, who needs to create an FSA ID, and what your FSA ID will be used for even after college. For more information on the FAFSA, visit our Applications for Student Financial Aid page.
