This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin, Karen, Megan, and Rachel discuss student loan debt reform recommendations NASFAA made with support from a grant provided by Arnold Ventures.

Maria then updates listeners on the latest news, including a preview of President Joe Biden’s student loan debt relief application and a new Federal Register notice detailing the Biden administration’s authority to carry out the debt relief.
