This week on "Off The Cuff," Allie, Megan, and Jill dig into the latest proposal from Senate education committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) that would simplify the FAFSA and modify the current student loan repayment system before borrowers are required to resume monthly payments on October 1, among other things. Megan then provides an update on where things are at with the latest federal relief package and what it means for higher education. Jill details the latest guidance from the Department of Education (ED) on additional funding from the CARES Act for institutions in need and how institutions can apply for the reserve fund. Plus, the team wants to know — what have you learned about yourself during the quarantine?
