FAFSA Launch Officially Delayed

"The new version of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid won’t be available to students until December, the Education Department confirmed this week," Inside Higher Ed reports

... "Justin Draeger, president and CEO of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, applauded FSA for committing to a December 2023 release and sharing the road map."

"'We know Federal Student Aid understands the importance of this process and we are pleased they are providing the resources and training necessary for the student aid and college access professionals to fully implement these changes,' Draeger said in a statement. 'While this is later than usual, knowing when the FAFSA will be released will help institutions, states, and college-access organizations prepare and plan appropriately. Along with the department, our top priority is to have the FAFSA released securely, stably, and accurately.'"
