Senate Panel Examines Simplifying Aid Process

Nov. 28 (UPI) — A U.S. Senate committee Tuesday heard testimony on ways to simply the application process for federal college student aid.

The Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions is examining proposals to simplify the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.

This year, an estimated $2.3 billion in federal financial aid grants wasn’t claimed because eligible graduates failed to complete and submit the FAFSA.
