FSA ID

If you're a student, parent, or borrower and you're logging in to a U.S. Department of Education (ED) website—like fafsa.gov, the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS®) at www.nslds.ed.gov, StudentLoans.gov, StudentAid.gov, and Agreement to Serve (ATS) at teach-ats.ed.gov—you will be asked to create new log-in credentials known as the FSA ID.

The FSA ID—a username and password—benefits you in four ways:

  • It removes your personally identifiable information (PII), like your Social Security number, from your log-in credentials
  • It creates a more secure and efficient way to verify your information when you log in to access to your federal student aid information online
  • It gives you the ability to easily update your personal information, like your phone number, e-mail address, or your name
  • It allows you to easily retrieve your username and password by requesting a secure code be sent to your e-mail address or by answering challenge questions

Creating an FSA ID is simple and only takes a few minutes. For step-by-step instructions, see the How To Create an FSA ID Guide.

It's FASFA Time!

The 2015 Dollars and $ense newsletter is now available. Look for each issue which includes financial aid information and other important Enrollment and Student Services updates.

All on-campus residents must have satisfied their student account balance prior to their official check-in date. Account balances may be satisfied with anticipated financial aid awards and/or payment plans made with Enrollment and Student Services (ESS). Students may view their student account status including account balance, charges, payments, and financial aid awards in SharkLink. Financial aid recipients must ensure that all financial aid requirements have been fulfilled so that the financial aid awarded will be disbursed to the student's account as scheduled. Financial aid requirements may include the completion of additional paperwork or of an online Master Promissory Note and entrance counseling for first-time loan borrowers.

Students with outstanding balances must contact an ESS representative prior to their check-in date for payment, payment plan set-up, or the completion of outstanding financial aid requirements at (954) 262-5200 or (954) 262-3380.

Please be advised that students will not be able to check-in to the Residential Life and Housing halls until all requirements to satisfy their outstanding balance have been fulfilled.
