Federal School Codes are six-character alphanumeric codes that uniquely identify colleges and universities that are eligible for Title IV federal student aid. Federal School Codes begin with the number 0 (zero) or the letter B, E or G. Federal School Codes were previously known as Title IV Institution Codes and are sometimes referred to as FAFSA School Codes.
Students provide one or more Federal School Codes when completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to indicate which colleges and universities should receive a copy of the results from the student’s processed FAFSA.
There are several ways of finding a college’s Federal School Code:
Most colleges list their Federal School Codes in the financial aid section of their website.
The U.S. Department of Education provides a Federal School Code Search tool on its website. Entering the state and city in which the school is located will make the search for the college or university easier. This tool recognizes common abbreviations, acronyms, and alternate spellings like MIT and Caltech. If the college is located outside the U.S., select the name of the country or “Foreign Country” as the state.
You can look up Federal School Codes while completing the FAFSA.
