This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin and Karen are joined by Jon Fansmith, the American Council on Education's assistant vice president for government relations, to discuss the latest news surrounding the potential for broader student loan debt relief that the White House is actively examining, and the wide-ranging implications executive action could have on higher education financing. Karen also reminds listeners about an important May 6 deadline for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) Annual Performance Reports (APRs) and provides some helpful guidance on the process. Hugh rounds things out by providing a recap of some of the week’s higher education news, with some concerning numbers on FAFSA renewals and a new report detailing how policymakers can go about promoting more equitable degree completions.
