Education Department to Ease FAFSA Verification Requirements This Year

"The U.S. Department of Education announced Tuesday it will reduce verification requirements this year for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid amid the rocky release of the updated form," Higher Ed Dive reports. 

... "Justin Draeger, president and CEO of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, called the department’s relief measures much needed."

"'To make this work, higher education stakeholders require a sustained effort, which includes additional administrative relief and the Department meeting its FAFSA processing timelines going forward,' he said Tuesday. 'Students and families cannot afford any additional delays.'"
