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 and national engagement, to discuss the latest fears from the financial aid community surrounding outstanding questions on the rollout of FAFSA simplification. The team digs into those concerns, offers suggestions on contingency planning, and stresses for aid offices to remain flexible as the department approaches its December rollout. The team then dives into the latest congressional news and updates listeners on the annual appropriations process, previews next week’s negotiated rulemaking session and highlights some reporting on a bumpy transition to student loan repayment.
