Minnesota Colleges Scramble to Re-evaluate Decision Deadlines After FAFSA Delays

"Some Minnesota colleges are scrambling to figure out if they should extend their decision deadlines after the U.S. Department of Education announced it would be sharing students' financial aid information with schools weeks later than anticipated," the Star Tribune reports.

..."National organizations representing financial aid officers were quick to express their frustration.

'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."
