STEP 1:  Create an FSA ID

The FSA ID gives you access to Federal Student Aid's online system 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.
