Government Shut Down and Financial Aid Impact
As per the U.S. Department of Education (U.S.D.E.), it is anticipated that the government shutdown will have limited impact to the federal student aid delivery functions. As set forth under the government shutdown, the U.S.D.E. underwent a furlough of their staff and as such some government websites may not be up to date and the agencies may not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations. However, services related to FAFSA will continue.
