FAFSA delays pose problems for students and colleges

The FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is used by current and prospective college students to determine their eligibility for student financial aid. Last week, the U.S. Department of Education announced that data from the FAFSA will not be sent to colleges until the first half of March, which is a 4-6 week delay.
