FAFSA Data’s Latest Delay: March

"Colleges were primed to receive data from the revamped Free Application for Federal Student Aid this week, only to find they’re in for a longer wait," The Chronicle of Higher Education reports.

..."'These continued delays, communicated at the last minute, threaten to harm the very students and families that federal student aid is intended to help,' Justin Draeger, president of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, said in a statement.

This is a curveball for any student who might use financial aid. Many state aid programs and scholarships are awarded using FAFSA data."
