Department Student Aid System (DSAS)

DSAS is used to process student awards (e.g., fees, stipends, and training grants). Once the award input is reviewed, it is fed through a nightly batch process into ProSAM, which in turn sends it to CARS. Visit the DSAS website for more information.

System Access

Request access to the system and a logon ID using the System Access Request Application (SARA), indicating the Student Awards function and Processing Unit(s) you may administer. Your manager (and Control Unit, if applicable) must approve your request online. The approved request is routed to the BFS Security Administrator, who will process your request and email you when your logon ID is activated.


DSAS training is offered and encouraged for new DSAS users. Refer to the Blu portal for session dates and times, and to enroll in courses.
