How does an FHA Roster Appraiser register for an FHA Connection User ID?

The system will not assign a user ID and password for the FHA Connection (FHAC) until after your application is approved and you are in an active status on the roster. Read the eligibility requirements first, and submit your application.

After you are active on the roster, you may request an ID to access your record and to keep your information current.

To register as an authorized user of FHA Connection complete the Appraiser Registration form available at

You will receive an email within 24 hours informing you whether an ID was issued.

If the ID is issued, you will receive a letter in the mail within 7-10 business days, which will include the user ID and password. Put these in a safe place. You may not need to use them again until you renew and you will likely not recall them from memory.

For assistance send an email message to the FHA Resource Center at and type in the subject line “Need User Id Assistance”. Please include your full name, phone number, email address, and license number in the body of the email.
