Changes Coming to the FSA PIN
On May 10 Federal Student Aid (FSA) websites (including FAFSA and NSLDS) will be converted to a user ID and password authentication as opposed to PIN authentication. User ID and password authentication is how you sign in most other websites, including all UMSL sites. When you first try to access an FSA website on or 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 have begun sending out financial aid packages for new undergraduate students. If you have submitted your FAFSA, but you have not received your financial aid package, please be sure to check your To-Do list in MyView.
We will package continuing students in late-June, once we have finished all of our review processes from the current academic year. 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.
