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.
    • Complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA for enrollments beginning between May 2020 and March 2021. For enrollments that begin May 2019 through enrollments that began March 2020, please complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA.
