Pandemic Fuels Increase in Financial Aid Appeals

"Institutions are reporting an increase in the number of financial aid appeal requests they've received since last March, pointing to the financial impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is continuing to have on students' ability to pay for college, according to a new survey from the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators," Inside Higher Ed reports. 

..."The latest survey, conducted last month, had almost identical responses to a survey on the same topic conducted in September 2020, said NASFAA, showing that the economic effects of the pandemic are still ongoing.

'The worst of the pandemic may be behind us, but students and families will continue to feel the financial impact for months and possibly years to come,' Justin Draeger, president of NASFAA, said in a statement."
