We are pleased to announce the availability of the updated 2019-20 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 fafsa.gov, 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.
