"The Department of Education is supposed to release an updated version of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid in October, but organizations representing financial aid officers and college access groups are seeking to confirm that timeline," Inside Higher Ed reports.
... "The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators and the National College Attainment Network wrote to the White House and the department last month to ask whether the administration could confirm that the 2024–25 FAFSA will be ready Oct. 1, as currently planned."
"NASFAA and other organizations have previously raised concerns about whether the department could meet the Oct. 1 deadline, given all the projects that the Office of Federal Student Aid is tackling and the work involved to update the application, which is the key to unlocking federal financial aid for millions of students each year."
