U.S. to Ease Financial-Aid Process for Students Affected by Shutdown of Application Tool

"The Department of Education moved to ease the burden on tens of thousands students facing extra scrutiny in the financial-aid process because of problems with an online tool that automatically imports information from tax returns into applications for federal student aid," The Wall Street Journal reports.
 
"The workaround could ease the process of applying for financial aid for tens of thousands of students, said Justin Draeger, president of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators.
 
'This is very good news; it will help students move through the process faster,' Mr. Draeger said."
