Our team of experts knows how crucial it is to stay up on financial aid news, so we compiled a list of our favorite sources here.
While our specialty of private loan processing is just one part of your day, our team has worked with financial aid professionals for decades – and many of them have worked in a financial aid office. Knowing firsthand how important it is to stay on top of the latest financial aid news in a rapidly changing industry, we compiled a list of sources for articles, blogs, and social media accounts that we rely on to help stay in the know.
News Articles and Blogs
The Department of Education blog is generally more focused on K-12 education, but you can sign up to receive news about post-secondary topics. Federal Student Aid offers a What’s New page that links to electronic announcements and Dear Colleague letters from the Department of Education.
For other, non-government sources of news articles and blogs covering topics pertaining to financial aid professionals, check out these sources.
