Education Department Extends FAFSA Verification Waivers

"The Department of Education will extend waivers for certain verification requirements on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Had the department not extended the waivers, more than 100,000 students could have been forced to pause or leave postsecondary education, according to an announcement released Wednesday," Inside Higher Ed reports.

..."'Financial aid administrators across the country will put these waivers to good use and, as they did last year, will fast-track financial aid dollars to students who are otherwise mired in bureaucratic red tape,' said Justin Draeger, president of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators."
