Reminders and News

Check your UB email often! Our office sends several emails to the general student population throughout the course of the year to make sure you have all the information you need.

Complete Your HUB To Do List Requirements! Check your HUB To Do List and complete any outstanding requirements. Your financial aid may be held until you have completed your checklist requirements.

New FSA ID will replace the Federal Student Aid PIN. On May 10, 2015, Federal Student Aid (FSA) will implement a new login process for student and borrower-based websites including FAFSA on the web, NSLDS Student Access,, and the TEACH Grant website. The new FSA ID will replace the Federal Student Aid PIN and will be comprised of a username and password selected by the user.

This change is being made to eliminate the need for individuals to enter personal identifiers such as a Social Security Number, name and date of birth to access FSA systems. Existing users with a Federal Student Aid PIN will be able to link their PIN information to the FSA ID.

Refer to the How To Create a FSA ID Guide for more information on how to register for your FSA ID.

Information is subject to change without notice due to changes in federal, state and/or institutional rules and regulations. Students must complete a FAFSA every year. Students must be making satisfactory academic progress to continue to receive financial aid.
