In January 2015, NASFAA conducted a survey that polled financial aid administrators on the amount of administrative burden they experience. The findings indicate that students attending institutions from all higher education sectors are likely experiencing reduced access to financial aid office services, largely due to a prolonged increase in administrative burden and an environment characterized by limited operating resources. This panel will discuss work that’s being done on the federal level to reduce administrative burden, particularly through the context of the upcoming reauthorization of the higher education act.
