New Federal Student Ais (FSA) ID to Replace FAFSA PIN

This year, Federal Student Aid will implement a new login process for student- and borrower-based websites, including the FAFSA and the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS).

Currently, students and parents enter a four-digit PIN to access the FAFSA and other Federal Student Aid websites.  When the new login process is implemented in April, users will authenticate their identity by entering a new FSA ID, which will be comprised of a user-selected username and password.​

To comply with new security requirements, Federal Student Aid is making this change which will eliminate the need for individuals to enter personal identifiers such as name, Social Security number, and date of birth when accessing federal student aid information.​

FSA is working to ensure that the transition from the PIN to the FSA ID is as seamless as possible, and existing users will be able to link their PIN information to the FSA ID.​

The transition to the FSA ID is scheduled to take place in late April. Students who submit the FAFSA before the transition is implemented will continue to use their PIN.  Stay tuned for instructions on how to register for your new FSA ID! 

Using Electronic Processes for Financial Aid Notifications

Occasionally, Mayland Community College will communicate with students via campus email or via personal email addresses provided by the students.  No action is necessary for students to opt-in to the email form of communication.  However, students who prefer to receive only paper communication from the Financial Aid Department must complete the Email Opt-Out form which is available upon request.  The type of notification to be provided through email could be (but is not limited to) information concerning Satisfactory Academic Progress, Financial Aid Appeal decisions, and requests for financial aid documents needed for processing.  Formal communication such as the Financial Aid award letter will be sent in writing, via the US Postal Service.

Financial Aid Made Easy 

Applying for financial aid can be intimidating.  You know you should apply, but submitting the FAFSA can be complicated and confusing.  The FAFSA Tutorial can help!  This tutorial gives you step by step instructions for submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), making it as easy as 1-2-3. 

Mayland's school code is 011197.  Use it when completing your FAFSA.
