This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin dives into the takeaways from the presidential election results, which as of the podcast’s recording was still undecided, and what it all means for a number of higher education issues like FAFSA simplification and Higher Education Act reauthorization. Megan delves into what is slated for the lame duck session of Congress and ongoing spending talks, and Justin touts a letter NASFAA signed onto that urged the Department of Education (ED) to extend and expand the current student loan repayment relief, which currently expires on December 31. Jill then talks about changing guidance on R2T4 waivers. Plus, the group takes a guess as to how each member tuned into coverage of election night and wants to know if you were glued to social media and network coverage, or if you spent the night relaxing.
