Access My FAFSA Account

At any point you can use your FAFSA PIN to check the status of your FAFSA or to check on a correction you made to your FAFSA:

1. Visit

2. Click the "Start Here" button.

3. Login using the student's first and last names, Social Security Number and Date of Birth.

Checking the status of your application at any time during the processing period is beneficial, but we recommend you at least check the status at the following times:

- 3 to 5 days after submission - if you used a PIN to sign your application
- 2 to 3 weeks after submission - if you printed, signed, and mailed a signature page.

Helpful Hint: If you printed out the Electronic Filing Instructions when you filed your Web application, write down the dates you checked the status.

If you have already checked the status of your processed application and would like to view your application data, click here. (Note: You must have a U.S. Department of Education PIN.)
