Subject: 2018-19 Federal School Code List of Participating Schools (November 2017)

We are pleased to announce the availability of the initial 2018-2019 Federal School Code (FSC) List of Participating Schools on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) website. The Federal School Code List contains the unique codes assigned by the Department of Education for schools participating in the Title IV federal student aid programs. Students enter these codes on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) to indicate which postsecondary schools will receive the processed application results.

The Federal School Code List of Participating Schools is available electronically as a Microsoft Excel (XLS) file. In addition to the Federal School Code search that is already available on, the XLS file provides you with the most current FSC information available in a searchable format. An updated XLS file is posted to the IFAP website on a quarterly basis.

Submitting Updates to FSC Information

FSC information must be kept current. To update your FSC information, go to the Electronic Application for Approval to Participate in the Federal Student Financial Aid Programs (E-App) website, located at Click on “Update your Federal School Code Addresses which are used by the FAFSA”, located on the left side of the page under the “Other Features” section.

Note: A school can only have one city and state for each FSC. In addition, changes to the FSC file do not update your school's name or address in any other U.S. Department of Education database. If you need to change the “Official Name or Address” of your school, you must submit an “Update” application through the E-App website.

Contact Information

We appreciate your assistance in keeping your school's FSC information up to date. For help with the E-App website, contact the Federal Student Aid School Participation Team for your state. Please see the E-App home page for the phone number of your School Participation Team.
