TLDR: Technology glitches plague new system to apply FAFSA

Many students are facing difficulties with the new system to apply for Federal Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) due to technology glitches that have caused nearly 80% of applications to get lost in the system. Schools like Washburn University are not receiving the applications, making it impossible to put together financial aid offers for students. Despite efforts to resolve the issues, students are advised to apply for scholarships and contact their schools for information on tuition fees and book expectations.

Technology glitches plague new system to apply FAFSA

According to Senator Roger Marshall, technology glitches have plagued the new system to apply for Federal Student Financial Aid (FAFSA), causing nearly 80% of applications to get lost in the system. This has left students and schools in a difficult situation as they are unable to receive the necessary information to determine financial aid offers.

Washburn University’s Financial Aid Director, Andy Fogel, mentioned that while most issues have been resolved, schools are still not receiving the applications, leading to extended deadlines for submission. Fogel advised students to apply for every scholarship opportunity available and to contact their schools for information on tuition fees and book expectations.

The hope is that the issues will be resolved by next month, allowing students to make informed decisions about their education financing. In the meantime, students are encouraged to take proactive steps to secure financial aid and seek assistance from their respective schools.
