OTC Inside the Beltway: A Big Year for Delays

This week on "Off the Cuff,"  Allie, Karen, and Rachel discuss the latest adjustments to the rollout of the 2024-25 FAFSA, including a miscalculation in the SAI formula. The team covers a number of other possible FAFSA issues and outlines what updates they would like to see from the Department of Education (ED) as the rollout begins to ramp up. Rachel then provides an update on the federal budget cycle, where Congress recently completed its work for the fiscal year 2024, and now turns to the president’s budget request containing newly proposed funding levels for ED for fiscal year 2025.
