Higher Ed Organizations Press for Firm FAFSA Release Date

"Eight higher education organizations are asking the U.S. Department of Education to commit to a date by which it will release the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, which is in the process of being revised," K-12 Dive reports

... "Traditionally, the FAFSA goes live Oct. 1. But groups like the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators wrote to the Office of Federal Student Aid last week that they heard it may be delayed, potentially even past the end of the year."

"The groups are asking the Education Department to say by May 1 when it will publish the FAFSA. They wrote that states, colleges and access organizations 'must prepare to make significant adjustments to their systems and processes based on the FAFSA release date.'"
