You and your parent (for dependent students) sign your FAFSA application each with a separate Federal Student Aid (FSA) I.D. Make sure both you and your parent (for dependent students) have separate email addresses that can be easily accessed prior to creating the FSA ID.

All students and parents are encouraged to complete theIRS data retrieval process within the FAFSA. If you are selected for verification, you will be required to complete the IRS data retrieval (video) process. Alternatively, a student or parent can submit a Tax Return Transcript from the IRS.
