This week on "Off the Cuff," Justin, Jill, and David discuss the latest news coming out of the Department of Education (ED) with updates on how the department will implement provisions from the FAFSA Simplification Act for the 2023-24 award year and a flurry of final rules that were recently released.
The NASFAA office will be closed on Friday, November 11, in observance of the Veterans Day federal holiday. The NASFAA website and other online services will still be available, but NASFAA's Today's News will not be sent, and technical and membership support will not be available until the office reopens on Monday, November 14.

Next week the Vera Institute of Justice will be hosting a free webinar covering the key takeaways from the Department of Education’s (ED) recently published final rules on Pell Grant reinstatement for incarcerated individuals. Those regulations will stipulate the requirements colleges with approved prison education programs (PEPs) must follow in order for students who are incarcerated to be eligible to access Pell Grants. These rules will also have important implications for potential students and opportunities for community-based partners. The webinar will be hosted on Thursday, November 17, from 2:30-3:45 p.m. ET. At the end of the webinar there will be a Q&A session that will include representatives from ED. Register now to reserve your seat!
