New FAFSA Delay Is a ‘Gut Punch.’ What Can Colorado Families Do Now?

"Colorado students who plan to go to college this fall are facing yet another financial aid delay," Chalkbeat reports.

..."Here and nationally, college experts worry these delays will further harm students who need the most financial support to get to college. National Association of Financial Aid Administrators President and CEO Justin Draeger said in a Tuesday statement that schools are scrambling, especially as some families still can’t fill out the new Better FAFSA released late last month.

'These continued delays, communicated at the last minute, threaten to harm the very students and families that federal student aid is intended to help,' he said."
