OTC From the Field: All Things SAVE With Under Secretary James Kvaal

This week on a special episode of "Off the Cuff," Justin is joined by U.S. Department of Education Under Secretary James Kvaal to discuss the administration's Saving on A Valuable Education (SAVE) repayment plan, a new income-driven repayment (IDR) plan that the administration has been heavily promoting as student loan repayments resume. The conversation dives into the benefits of the plan, the enrollment process, the timeline associated with its implementation, an overview of ED’s student loan portfolio, and more. Justin and Under Secretary Kvaal also go on to discuss some of the administration’s upcoming priorities for higher education, new regulations, the federal budget, and much more.
