Episode 31: Congress Digs Into the DRT Data Breach, And Year-Round Pell Is Resurrected

This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin, Stephen, and Allie discuss the details of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform's hearing on the FAFSA data breach. During the hearing, federal officials announced that the DRT will be up and running again for the next FAFSA cycle, but with some changes that could complicate things for students and financial aid offices. Stephen also explains the nuances of approval for the year-round Pell Grant in Congress' recent budget deal, and how funding for the Pell program could impact awards for the 2017-18 award year and beyond. Plus, Justin sells us on why "shower wipes" are a great alternative when you're on the move, and Stephen tells us about a "Mission Impossible"-style test thievery in Kentucky.
