Financial Aid Appeals Remain High Due to Pandemic, NAFSAA Survey Shows

"Despite the promise of widespread vaccination and the further reopening of businesses across the U.S., students and families largely are not in better financial positions than they were last fall," University Business reports. 

"According to a new report from the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA), appeals for financial aid to higher education institutions this year remain largely unchanged from their past survey done in September 2020.

'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,' said NASFAA President Justin Draeger. 'Students and parents whose financial circumstances have changed should reach out to their financial aid office for help. Often, the steps needed to seek a financial aid adjustment due to changing family circumstances are provided directly on the institution’s website or student portal.'"
