Higher Ed Groups Call for Quick Changes to FAFSA Verification

"The federal government should use data it possesses and share it among agencies to alleviate burdens on administrators and on financial aid applicants selected for an audit process known as verification, according to a report published Monday," Education Dive reports. 

"Those who fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid can be picked for verification, which is widely viewed as time-consuming and onerous, especially for students from low-income households. The new research from the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators and the National College Attainment Network suggests ways to remove some of these hurdles."
