NEWS FROM NASFAA

On Wednesday, the Department of Education (ED) released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for the majority of topics negotiated by the Affordability and Student Loans committee that convened last fall as part of the department’s 2021-22 negotiated rulemaking agenda.

In the keynote presentation of the 2022 NASFAA Virtual Conference on Tuesday, attendees heard firsthand about how what were once thought to be short-term impacts of the pandemic have resulted in unprecedented change to the higher education sector. Dr. Kevin Kruger, CEO of NASPA, walked NASFAA members through the potential barriers and new possibilities for the future of student affairs that are beginning to emerge in the wake of the pandemic.

NASFAA UPDATES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

While no announcement has been made by the U.S. Department of Education (ED), schools have been reporting a sudden uptick in Institutional Student Information Records (ISIRs) after July 1, 2022. Comment Code 390 is most likely due to the Selective Service database match and a change in processing that was implemented July 1, 2022. ED disabled the Selective Service database match as part of the phased-in approach to removing the Selective Service requirement from FAFSA processing. In the June 17, 2021 Federal Register notice, ED indicated that they would be phasing in the changes over the course of three award years. View the full answer to this question to learn more.
