Last week, NASFAA submitted comments to the Department of Education (ED) on proposed institutional and programmatic responsibility regulations, which included a new financial value transparency framework for all programs at all institution types, as well as reinstated gainful employment rules for all programs at proprietary schools and certificate programs at all institution types. NASFAA challenged ED’s process as well as statutory authority in several areas related to financial value transparency, and questioned the validity of the new earnings premium metric. Other topics NASFAA addressed include new financial aid offer requirements, valid high school diploma requirements, and transcript withholding.
A contributor is anyone who is asked to provide information on an applicant’s FAFSA including: The student; The student's spouse (if applicable); A biological or adoptive parent; or The spouse of the remarried parent who is on the FAFSA--the stepparent. The new FAFSA is student driven, so that means the student's answers on their section will determine who will be a contributor (in addition to the student).
