Episode 155: NASFAA Congratulates David Gelinas, ED Releases Foreign Gifts Portal, Origination Fees

This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin, Megan, Jill, and Allie are joined by 2005-06 NASFAA National Chair David Gelinas, who is the 2020 recipient of NASFAA's Lifetime Achievement Award, the highest award that the association can bestow on one of its members. David shares how he earned the nickname "Sheriff Dave," his advice that he would pass along to others in the profession, and what his plans are for retirement. At 12:03, Megan shares the latest on the Department of Education's portal for foreign gift reporting, as well as recently released student loan origination fees. At 19:18, the group discusses news out of Federal Student Aid, as the office announced its selection of five companies to provide customer support to federal student loan borrowers. Plus, the team wants to know: What shows have you been binge watching lately? The podcast team will be on hiatus next week in observance of the Fourth of July — we'll catch up with you in two weeks!
