We set the standards for success!

At Florida State University, your dreams for a quality education can become reality. Florida State University is a public institution where students can look forward to a quality education at an affordable rate. Still, tuition, housing, food, and books can add up.

The FSU Office of Financial Aid exists to assist students with securing federal, state and institutional financial aid to achieve their degree. Each year, the FSU Office of Financial Aid awards and administers more than 280 million dollars in financial aid to eligible students. Students receive aid in the form of scholarships, grants, work study, and loans -- funds that help them to focus on their education and complete their degree so that they can go into the world with purpose.



Important Steps for incoming students (freshman and transfers):

Note -- you must have an active FSUID to log in to the FSU system.

If you have not activated your ID please do that first here.

You'll need your EMPLID -- you can look it up here.


FSU Email Notification Policy

In accordance with the policy stated in the FSU Bulletin, the official method of communication at The Florida State University is the University Computing Services/ FSU e-mail account. In order to stay informed and aware, students are required to set up and maintain their account, and check it three times per week.





All degree seeking students:

Be sure to submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to FSU.


If you already completed the FAFSA for 2013-2014 - update it with FSU's school code of 001489.

If you have not completed the FAFSA, you can still do so online at www.fafsa.ed.gov

Remember -- you need to apply EACH year (starting January 1st ) for federal, state and institutional grant, work study and loan consideration. Some funds are limited so it's important to APPLY EARLY!

Estimated tax data IS Acceptable (tax data should be updated once the tax is filed).

The FAFSA FSU school code is:






No supplemental Summer Application required for Summer 2014 Financial Aid

All students who are admitted for Summer 2014 and students currently enrolled in Spring 2014 classes who have a valid 2013-2014 FAFSA on file will be awarded financial aid for Summer 2014.

Offers will be posted later in the term (early April). Students who will not enroll for summer can refuse their financial aid offer at that time.
