Changes to the FSA PIN

On May 10 Federal Student Aid (FSA) websites (including FAFSA and NSLDS) were converted to a user ID and password authentication as opposed to PIN authentication. User ID and password authentication is how you sign in to most other websites, including all UMSL sites. When you first try to access an FSA website after May 10, you will be required to set up your user ID and password for the first time. Thereafter, you will use that user ID and password instead of your PIN. For more information about the transition, please see this flyer from the US Department of Education.

2015-2016 Financial Aid

We are sending out financial aid packages weekly to all students. Be sure to watch your student email and your To-Do list in MyView to make sure we've received your FAFSA for 2015-2016 and that we don't require additional documentation from you to package your financial aid for the coming year. We will notify all students at their UMSL student email addresses when their financial aid packages are ready. New students will also receive mail via USPS at their mailing address on record in MyView.
