If you complete your FAFSA online or using the mobile app, you will be prompted to create a ‘Save Key’.

Creating a Save Key is recommended because you:

  • Don’t need to complete the FAFSA in one sitting
  • Can share the Save Key with a parent so they can provide their information
  • Can go back and forth between the online and mobile methods – the information will sync
