This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin and Karen are joined by Jon Fansmith, the American Council on Education's senior vice president of government relations, to recap and debrief how President Joe Biden’s student loan cancellation program fared in oral arguments heard by the United States Supreme Court. The group then discusses the Department of Education’s (ED) updated guidance on third-party servicers and the removal of the question on the 2024-25 FAFSA that asks students whether they will live on campus or with parents.
The Department of Education (ED) on Thursday announced that it would be taking steps to hold leaders of private colleges personally liable for debts owed to the department when they fail to operate in a financially responsible manner.

Throughout February, our members from across the country went above and beyond spreading the word about Financial Aid Awareness Month by hosting events, games, and social media campaigns to engage students.

Congratulations to the winners of our raffle: Baker University, Oberlin College, and Marshalltown Community College! Thank you to all of our members who participated in spreading the word during #FinAidFeb — we appreciate the work you do day in and day out!
