Student Loan Borrowers Win, Nightmare Forms Remain

Narmak Nassirian has his finger on the pulse of what’s coming at higher ed in many areas. Last week, he appeared in both Time and the Huffington Post, with regard to student loans (see below).

SCUPers will get a chance to meet and hear Hassirian July 12–16 in Pittsburgh—at higher ed's premier planning event for 2014,  Plan for the Transformation of Higher Education. Register now.

  • Student Loan Borrowers Win As Education Department Reverses:

    Barmak Nassirian, director of federal relations and policy analysis for the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, said last month that the Education Department was not ‘sufficiently focused on its primary clients: students.’” [Time]

  • Student Loan Forms Are Still a Nightmare:

    “‘The persistent complexity is partly because the financial-aid formula itself is so confusing,’ said Barmak Nassirian ... ‘With the FAFSA, it’s better to own your home, for example. ... Better than that is to own a farm, and better than that is to own a small business with fewer than 99 employees.’” [Huffington Post]

How does this affect your professional life?
