FAFSA Forms Delayed Again, Here's How It Could Impact College Students

"Big changes to financial aid forms are causing long delays, giving colleges less time to figure out offer letters, and students just weeks to make a decision," KARE 11 reports.

"'It is compressing an already compressed timeframe,' National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) Senior Policy Analyst Jill Desjean said.

Colleges across the country were preparing to receive millions of FAFSA forms this week to start sending offers to students, but the electronic forms never showed up.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Education announced the forms won't be sent to colleges and universities until the middle of March.

'So, another six-week delay on top of the already existing delay,' Desjean said."
