The myStudentAid Mobile App Is Retiring

Based on usage data, we have decided to retire the myStudentAid mobile app on June 30, 2022. Since the launch of the mobile app in 2018, students, parents, and borrowers have shown a preference for visiting StudentAid.gov on a mobile device rather than using the myStudentAid mobile app.

Students, parents, and borrowers can access all the mobile app's functionality—and more—on StudentAid.gov. Heres some of what they can do on our website:

  • learn about the financial aid process, loan repayment, and loan forgiveness
  • create an FSA ID (account username and password)
  • fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form
  • apply for a Direct PLUS Loan
  • sign a Master Promissory Note
  • complete entrance and exit counseling
  • manage their student aid account
  • identify their loan servicer
  • apply for or recertify an income-driven repayment plan

StudentAid.gov is mobile-responsive, meaning the site's pages fit the screen size and shape of any device—providing flexibility for accessing the website.

Between June 30 and July 10, the myStudentAid mobile app will still be available in app stores as we complete the retirement process. We'll provide messaging in each app store directing students, parents, and borrowers to StudentAid.gov. On July 10, we'll remove the myStudentAid mobile app from app stores. Note that each app store's process to remove the app will vary and, as a result, may impact their experience.
