Using the FAFSA app is easy


If your student is getting ready to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid to see how much federal financial aid they qualify for, the myStudentAid mobile app might be a good tool for you (and your student) to have.

How to use the myStudentAid mobile app

The myStudentAid app enables your student to complete the FAFSA, as well as use the personal dashboard to view grant and loan information, receive account alerts, and track loan repayment progress. Your student can create an FSA ID through the app (they’ll have to do this first before filing out the form on the app) and transfer your tax information to their FAFSA through the app’s IRS Data Retrieval Tool. Most importantly, everything your student does on the app is secure.

Another perk of the myStudentAid app is that if you have it on your phone, you can transfer your information from your student’s FAFSA to another child’s application when it’s their turn to go to college and fill out the FAFSA.

Check out and download the myStudentAid app in the App Store or Google Play.
