What is an FSA ID?
An FSA ID is comprised of a username and password that you create. Your FSA ID allows you to access your federal student aid information online and is used to log in to many U.S. Department of Education (ED) websites, including FAFSA on the Web, NSLDS Student Access,,, and the TEACH Grant website. Your FSA ID must be kept secure and never shared with anyone.

All students interested to submit a Free FAFSA online application must have a FSA ID created.

The FASFA is available in paper and electronic formats. You can get the paper version by calling 1-800-4-FED-AID. We encourage students to fill out a web-based version of the FAFSA at In order for our Institution to be able to receive the application you must add the school name and school code:


Florida Barber Academy

School code: 036114


After the application is completed, it is sent to the Department of Education FAFSA Processor. The data input will then be sent to the Central Processing System (CPS) to calculate the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and match the student’s data against a number of databases, such as the Social Security Administration’s citizenship database, Selective Service, Veteran’s Affairs, etc. After all processing is complete, you will receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) in about 4 – 6 weeks after submitting a paper application, 1-5 days after submitting a web based application and the institute will receive an Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) in the same time period.  FBA will review the ISIR or SAR produced by CPS.

Federal Pell Grant

A Federal Pell Grant is a free grant that does not have to be repaid. The student must complete the FAFSA in order to determine eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant. If the student is eligible for a Pell Grant, the award amount eligibility ranges from minimum of $700 to maximum of $6,895 for the 2022-2023 award year.


Student loans, unlike grants, are borrowed funds that must be repaid with interest. Loans made through this program are referred to as Direct Loans. Eligible Students and parents borrow directly from the U.S. Department of Education.  There are three types of loans in the program:


  • Subsidized Stafford Loan –The U.S. Department of Education pays the interest while you’re in school at least half-time and during the grace period.  The amount of the loan cannot exceed a Student’s financial need or the annual loan limit. The fixed interest rate for 2022-2023 is 4.99%
  • Unsubsidized Stafford Loan –The U.S. Department of Education does not pay interest on unsubsidized loans. The Student is responsible for paying the interest that accrues on the loan from the time the loan is disbursed until it’s paid in full.   The fixed interest rate for 2022-2023 is 4.99% can be paid while attending school, during a period of deferment or forbearance, or it can be accrued and the interest added to the principle amount of the loan.
  • PLUS Loans – Parents of dependent Students can borrow from the PLUS Loan program. The terms and conditions of this type of loan include a requirement that the applicant have a favorable credit history, a repayment period that begins on the date of the last disbursement of the loan, and a fixed interest rate for 2022-2023 of 7.54%.




The Annual Student Loan Acknowledgment is an online session that allows students and parents to see how much they have borrowed, preview what their monthly payments might be, and explain concepts such as capitalization and the difference between federal and private loans.

Starting in the 2022-2023 school year, borrowers of Federal Subsidized, Unsubsidized and PLUS loans will be required to complete the Informed Borrowing Confirmation process once each award year before receiving disbursement of their loan.




If this is your first time accepting a federal loan, you are acknowledging that you understand your responsibility to repay your loans.

If you have existing student loans, you are acknowledging that you understand how much you owe and how much more you can borrow.




Knowing how much you owe in federal student debt will allow you to make informed choices before agreeing to borrow more money to pay for higher education.

Calculating the monthly payments and the median salary you can expect to receive after graduating from college will give you a better understanding of your obligation.

Breaking down basic loan concepts such as interest accrual, capitalization, and the difference between private and federal student loans will help you better understand the balance for repayment.




After April 15th, 2020, log into your MyStudentAid account using your FSA ID and password to complete the Annual Student Loan Acknowledgment requirement.

Parent PLUS loan borrowers must also complete this requirement.
