College News On the Weekend

I wanted to share with you three college posts that I wrote this week for my other college blog  at CBSMoneyWatch. Hope you enjoy them!

1. Shrinking Your Federal Student Loans

A great federal program will begin this coming Wednesday that will provide relief to many borrowers who are struggling with repaying their federal student loans.

2. Declawing the FAFSA

I feel extremely fortunate that I haven’t had to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. I haven’t had to take out a federal student loan — at least not yet — so I’ve been able to skip this dreaded chore. Millions of parents haven’t been so lucky, but the good news is that the federal government is going to simplify the form beginning in January.

3. What College Will Look Like in 2020

According to a study by The Chronicle of Higher Education, the college experience is going to look much, much different in 11 years.
