Sen. Bill Cassidy and Rep. Virginia Foxx have urged an investigation into the Biden administration’s handling of the FAFSA program updates, citing delays and inconsistencies in its rollout.

The lawmakers expressed concern over the impact on students and families, emphasizing financial stress and uncertainty for those seeking aid.

They highlighted the need for clarity and support for applicants navigating the new FAFSA forms.

“The Department of Education’s delayed and botched roll-out of FAFSA is causing a lot of stress and anxiety for students trying to find out what schools they can afford to attend,” Cassidy said.

“The Biden administration had over three years to prepare but prioritized their student loan schemes over performing the basic tasks mandated by law and essential for American families and students.”

“Repeated delays from the Department of Education in rolling out the new FAFSA have left students and schools in limbo for the upcoming school year,” the attorneys wrote. “All these challenges and delays may cause some students — particularly low-income students who are most dependent on federal aid — to give up and not pursue postsecondary education.”

“Beyond the initial delays, it is also unclear whether Education is providing students and schools with sufficient information and guidance on the new FAFSA form and process,” they wrote. “The goal of FAFSA simplification was in part to make the whole process easier for students and their families. … However, initial feedback from students and schools indicates that Education’s current outreach efforts are falling short.”

Criticism has remained largely directed at the administration’s fast-tracking of a student loan debt cancellation plan, which has sparked controversy over its potential financial burden on taxpayers.
