FAFSA Section

  • FSA ID: The first step in the application process for federal student aid is to apply for a FSA ID. A FSA ID is a username and password that you must use to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education (ED) websites. Your FSA ID identifies you as someone who has the right to access your own personal information.
  • FAFSA: Link to the federal Department of Education's online application (Empire State College federal code = 010286) and complete the appropriate FAFSA. If you plan on attending Empire State College for enrollments beginning in May 2017 through enrollments beginning in March 2018, please be sure to complete the FAFSA for 2017-2018.  If you will be attending for enrollments beginning in or after May 2018, please complete the FAFSA for 2018-2019.
