FAFSA Changes

Congress made changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in the pandemic relief bill that they passed over the Christmas holidays. The FAFSA is used to determine how much financial aid a student is eligible to receive. I have been reading and researching the changes so I could write a piece to explain the specific differences and how they might impact families. I came across an interview with two leaders in the financial aid world and I realized that just sharing this piece would provide more coherent information than I could ever put together. If you want to get a handle on how these changes could effect you, look no further than this interview with Lynn O’Shaughnessy of The College Solution and Mark Kantrowitz, a nationally-recognized expert on financial aid. I have followed them both for years and I have learned so much from their deep expertise. The link is below. I hope you find this interview as informative as I did.
