Georgia Colleges Hustle After Federal Delay Slows Financial Aid Process

"It may take a bit longer than usual for some students to get financial aid offers from Georgia colleges," The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

... "In a normal year, once a student files the FAFSA, it takes 'a couple of days' for schools to receive the processed form, said Karen McCarthy, the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators’ vice president of public policy and federal relations. This year, the Education Department has said it will provide that data, used by many colleges to build financial aid offers, 'in late January.'"

"The stalled FAFSA release is creating a domino effect down the application and enrollment timeline, McCarthy said."
