Federal Student Aid Information Center (FSAIC)

Have a question about Title IV federal student aid or one of the services the Department of Education provides? Contact one of our Customer Service Centers or Federal Student Aid Offices.

The Federal Student Aid Information Center (FSAIC) serves the public with information about the federal student aid application process. FSAIC's primary role is to respond to student and parent inquiries. Customer service representatives provide comprehensive assistance in English, as well as Spanish, on general information related to federal student aid (Title IV programs), the FAFSA application (paper and online), pre-filled FAFSA on the Web, FAFSA corrections, FAFSA4caster, the U.S. Department of Education's federal student aid grant and loan programs and student loan history.

FSAIC responds to inquiries from a variety of communication channels, including phone calls to 1-800-4-FED-AID, live online help (chat), email. FSAIC also offers a self serve option for customers using an interactive voice response (IVR) system. Customers can order single copies of many of our publications such as fact sheets, worksheets, checklists, and the paper FAFSA application.

If a student who is enrolled at your school or who is planning to enroll at your school has provided you with his or her DRN number, you may call to inquire about the application data that is on file for that student.
