This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin and Karen are joined by Jon Fansmith, the American Council on Education's senior vice president of government relations, to discuss the implications of the ongoing negotiations surrounding the debt ceiling and how federal higher education programs could be impacted. The conversation dives into congressional negotiations and how the issue differs from the annual budgeting process. The group then turns to the student loan servicing landscape, the latest on the return to repayment timeline, and a discussion on NASFAA’s latest task force providing schools with a toolkit to prepare. Hugh catches members up on some recent news concerning House Republicans’ efforts to rescind the administration’s debt cancellation program and ED updates on PSLF applications.
