Department of Education Makes Another Fix to the FAFSA, Unlocking an Additional $1.8 Billion in Financial Aid

"The Department of Education said this week that it is making an additional adjustment to this year’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid, known as the FAFSA, that will make $1.8 billion more available in financial aid," CNN reports.

... "'Adjusting these inflationary numbers is the right thing to do, and should have been done from the beginning,' Justin Draeger, president of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, said in a statement."

"'Unfortunately, because the Department is making these updates so late in the financial aid processing cycle, students will now pay the price in the form of additional delays in financial aid offers and compressed decision-making timelines,' he added."
