This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin is joined by Dr. Ellie Bruecker, a senior research associate at the Seldin /Haring-Smith Foundation, to dive deep into the growing trend of states requiring FAFSA completion for high school graduation and what it means for postsecondary enrollment. Bruecker shares insights from data collected during her dissertation on the topic and touches on the costs and benefits of the policy, as well as how higher education enrollment trends can be impacted by student access to information surrounding the costs of a given program. Justin then brings in Hugh to recap some of the latest news concerning the negotiated rulemaking committee, and a new policy out of ED that aims to keep corporate owners of private colleges on the hook for paying student loan discharges following school closures.
