What is an FSA ID, and will I need it to complete the FAFSA® form?
The FSA ID allows students and parents to identify themselves electronically to access Federal Student Aid websites.
An FSA ID is made up of a username and password and can be used to log into the online (FAFSA®) form.
While you aren’t required to have an FSA ID to complete and submit a FAFSA form, it’s the fastest way to sign your application and have it processed. It’s also the only way to access or correct your information online, or to prefill an online FAFSA form with information from your previous year’s FAFSA form.
*If you don't already have an FSA ID, you can create an FSA ID.
*If you have an FSA ID but don't remember your username, select "Forgot Username."
*If you have an FSA ID but don't remember your password, select "Forgot Password."
**If you previously created an FSA ID when you were a student, you don’t need to create another one. You can only have one FSA ID linked to your Social Security number.**
SMA offers juniors and seniors the opportunity to take State College of Florida (SCF) courses. For some cadets, this is a valuable way to earn college course credit free of charge and still complete high school requirements for graduation. The student may choose to take one or more SCF courses and even achieve an associate degree while earning their high school diploma.
This program choice is for young adults who can manage both the coursework and the schedule. The SCF dual enrollment program is an excellent option to get a head start on a college career and save considerable tuition dollars.
Contact your counselor for more information about the SCF Dual Enrollment program.
SMA offers juniors and seniors the opportunity to attend Suncoast Technical College (STC) for those students looking to explore a career or technical program. Contact your counselor for more information.
