  •  The FSA ID ― a username and password ― has replaced the Federal Student Aid PIN and must be used to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education websites. Your FSA ID confirms your identity when you access your financial aid information and electronically sign Federal Student Aid documents. If you do not already have an FSA ID, you can create one when logging in to, the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS®) at,,, and Agreement to Serve (ATS) at or by following these instructions (How to Create FSA ID Guide).  Keep in mind that each student needs a FSA ID. For dependent students, the parent providing the income information on the FAFSA will also need to register for a FSA ID. 
  • Students should review items on their COIN Student To Do list via MyUMassD portal at   Failure to submit any required items will delay financial aid awarding and may impact aid eligibility.
