What Help Features are available in the FISAP on the Web?

The FISAP on the Web contains three help Features: Section Help, Page Help and General Help.

  • Section Help is represented by a question mark located to the right of the more complex fields on the FISAP. This button gives information specific to that section.
  • Page Help is located on the bottom left side of almost all pages of the website. It contains information specific to the current page.
  • General Help is located on the top navigation bar of each screen. It contains information about the Campus-Based Programs including FISAP Basics, Frequently Asked Questions, Getting Started with FISAP, a search feature, and more!

Questions from the Campus-Based Programs Community

I have a PIN number, but it seems like a PIN for a student to access their FAFSA records. Is this the PIN I will need to get into FISAP on the web?

Yes, it is the same PIN. The PIN will be used to validate your identity. After your identity is confirmed the site will use your Campus-Based TG# profile to determine your access rights to the website.

I went to the site to obtain a PIN and it requests my personal address. Is it correct for Financial Aid Administrator's to use their personal address?

Yes! To maintain the integrity of your PIN it may be safer to have your PIN sent to your home address

If I already have a PIN, do I need to get another one for this use?

No! If you already have a PIN and have access rights on a Campus-Based TG# you will be ready to log on in early September.
