NASFAA, National College Access Network (NCAN), and Ed Trust are working together to propose federal policy changes that will provide simplified and streamlined solutions for students on their pathway to a higher education credential. Presenters will share their research-based ideas on early awareness, FAFSA simplification, use of prior-prior year (PPY) income, Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) and reporting Pell Grant recipient graduation rates. This forum will be interactive, providing the audience with Q&A and the opportunity to participate in live polls on improving the proposed policy solutions. This work is part of the Reimagining Aid Design and Delivery project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
