This week on "Off The Cuff," Megan kicks things off by highlighting NASFAA’s joint effort in bringing to light important recommendations for the Department of Education (ED) to consider so borrowers are smoothly and successfully transitioned back into repayment once the federal protection currently in place expires. The team then covers recent congressional pressure and varying policy proposals that have urged the Biden administration to offer debt forgiveness on student loans. Allie has a few updates on the latest news surrounding borrower defense, and Justin provides insight into the latest surrounding Federal Student Aid’s chief operating officer following Mark Brown’s resignation. Jill catches the group up on language included in the American Rescue Plan Act that requires institutions to conduct professional judgment outreach. Plus, the team wants to know: Aside from Today’s News, do you have a favorite newsletter and how did you find it?
