Colleges Won’t Receive FAFSA Data Until March. Here’s What That Means for Students

"Colleges won’t start receiving students’ financial aid data from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, known as the FAFSA, until the first half of March – more than a month later than expected," CNN reports.

... “With this last-minute news, our nation’s colleges are once again left scrambling as they determine how best to work within these new timelines to issue aid offers as soon as possible — so the students who can least afford higher education aren’t the ones who ultimately pay the price for these missteps,” Justin Draeger, president of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, said in a statement Tuesday.
