This week on "Off The Cuff," the team discusses NASFAA's letter to Congress requesting increased funding for federal student aid programs in fiscal year 2019, and question whether the budget will be passed before the September deadline. Megan, Allie, and Stephen talked about concerns raised this week regarding expanding the role of a top Department of Education (ED) official. Allie walks the team through a recent ED report detailing cases in which students had their TEACH Grants converted into loans, as well a State Higher Education Executive Officers Association (SHEEO) report highlighting states' increased reliance on tuition funds. Plus, the team considers whether the conference room can double as a dance club.
