330,000 FAFSAs Must Be Reprocessed, Education Department Says

"About 330,000 federal financial aid applications will need to be reprocessed following yet another data error, according to the U.S. Department of Education," Higher Ed Dive reports.

..."The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators said the Education Department has acted quickly to fix issues as they arise and kept the financial aid community informed. 

Still, the continuous problems have made life difficult for students and financial aid staff.

'Continually taking two steps forward and one giant step back is not a sustainable pathway toward getting financial aid offers out to students and families,' Justin Draeger, president and CEO of NASFAA, said in a statement Tuesday. "
