More Frustration, Delays for St. Louis-Area Students Applying for College Financial Aid

"Local students and their parents say they are frustrated by the latest setback in what’s been a rocky rollout of changes to the college financial aid process," St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

..."The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators blasted the latest postponement.

'On the very day that schools were expecting FAFSA applicant information, they were instead notified by the U.S. Department of Education that they shouldn’t expect to receive that data until March, at the earliest. These continued delays, communicated at the last minute, threaten to harm the very students and families that federal student aid is intended to help,' said the association’s president Justin Draeger, in a written statement."
