"It’s FAFSA season again for high school seniors, others aspiring to postsecondary education, and current college students. A completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the necessary ticket that makes college possible for millions of students by granting them access to financial aid," the National College Attainment Network (NCAN) reports.
"While the often-tricky FAFSA filing process gets much attention, the follow-up procedure called verification can be even more burdensome – for both students and financial aid administrators. Today, college access practitioners and financial aid administrators are joining together to recommend solutions to ease the process for all involved.
In a new report – 'The Burden of Proof: Impact of and Solutions for FAFSA Verification' – the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) joins NCAN to recommend solutions for addressing the burden students and aid offices experience due to the FAFSA verification process."
