"The U.S. Department of Education announced Wednesday it will continue to waive parts of its process for auditing students’ financial aid documentation through the 2022-23 enrollment cycle," Education Dive reports.
..."National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators President Justin Draeger in a statement noted continued employee churn in financial aid offices. He said financial aid workers 'are struggling to help students through this bureaucratic process, which often results in little to no change in a student’s Pell Grant eligibility.'
'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,' Draeger said."
