OPINION: Student College Decisions Delayed by Rushed FAFSA Changes

BARUCH COLLEGE–The new Free Application for Federal Student Aid was launched on Dec. 30 after a three-month delay. The updated form has some new great features, however, as users attempted to access the website, they encountered glitches and college decision dilemmas.

The current launch felt rushed. It would have been better to wait another year for the complete experience of a polished website, rather than trying to fix the issues on the go as users are accessing the soft launch program.
