OTC AskRegs Experts: The National Emergency's Impact on Financial Aid and Upcoming Changes to Professional Judgment

This week on "Off the Cuff," Justin, Jill, and David discuss how rescinding the national emergency could impact financial aid and how the rollout of FAFSA Simplification will bring about changes to professional judgment. Jill dives into how House Republicans will bring a vote to the floor, once they assume the majority in January, that would rescind the president’s  national emergency declaration. David covers updates to professional judgment, which adds criteria around special circumstances and unusual circumstances. Maria then shares some recent higher education news, including updates to the ongoing legal challenges to President Joe Biden’s student loan debt relief plan and who could chair the House Education and Labor committee.
