Significant changes to federal student aid policy—including simplifying the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, expanding Pell Grant eligibility to incarcerated students, and making changes to the Cost of Attendance and Professional Judgment—were attached to the FAFSA Simplification Act. This session will outline those changes, implementation dates, and anticipated changes to current practices on campus. Panelists will review changes that will impact college and university business offices and examine the institutional partnerships necessary to navigate those changes.
