NASFAA's Megan McClean Discusses Student Financial Aid On Radio

NASFAA's Director of Policy and Federal Relations Megan McClean discusses student financial aid on America's Web Radio's Education Forum. During the program, McClean said NASFAA is particularly concerned with student loan indebtedness, better consumer information about higher education, and federal funding for student aid programs. "We know that we're in a time of great austerity as a country as a whole right now, and so we spend a lot of time trying to protect our programs and making sure folks on the Hill aware of just how important they are and the students they serve," McClean said. McClean also discusses recent changes in the interest rate, policy challenges and the role NASFAA plays in recommending to policymakers meaningful improvements to help families to finance costly college bills.
