Federal Student Aid to debut new website portal this month
March 04, 2021
Financial aid professionals will soon be adding another federal website to their list of bookmarked sites.
In a February 25 Electronic Announcement, Federal Student Aid (FSA) provided information about FSA Partner Connect, a new portal for schools and financial partners. The new FSA Partner Connect site at fsapartners.ed.gov will launch on March 28, 2021.
According to the Announcement, FSA Partner Connect will serve as the foundational platform for FSA's partners, including more than 5,500 postsecondary institutions, as they navigate their participation in the Title IV student aid programs. FSA Partner Connect will feature a knowledge center (replacing the Information for Financial Aid Professionals site) and provide access to the FSA handbook. In addition, authenticated users will be able to view a dashboard with data and analytics about the institution and access to account information for students, parents, and borrowers.
The Department will be sharing more information and offer training on the site in the coming weeks. In addition, information will be posted on a new FSA Partner Connect Information page at ifap.ed.gov/FSAPartnerConnectInformation.
