Free College Denied - Opinion Piece

Free College Denied - Opinion Piece

January 08, 2019

Katie Berger and Carrie Warick write: As tuition prices rise and policy makers increasingly recognize the vital importance of an educated work force and citizenry, the free-college movement has attracted widespread support from students, advocates and lawmakers from both political parties. As outlined in Ed Trust’s recent report, “A Promise Fulfilled: A Framework for Equitable Free College Programs,” those programs vary greatly in terms of who’s eligible and what benefits are provided. But most of them share a common requirement: that applicants complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, this year’s version of which is now available at FAFSA.gov.

A Policy That Harms the Neediest Students - Opinion Piece

A Policy That Harms the Neediest Students - Opinion Piece

January 08, 2019

Nivine Megahed writes: Colleges and universities across the country are seeing a significant increase in the number of students the U.S. Department of Education selects for verification of their financial aid applications. In the past, about 30 percent of students who filled out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid were selected for verification that required students to provide evidence that the information they submitted was accurate. This year, the Education Department flagged an astounding 75 percent of National Louis University’s freshman class of 640 students, and that has taken a harmful toll on many of them.

HBCU Websites Must Adhere to American with Disabilities Act Guidelines - Opinion Piece

HBCU Websites Must Adhere to American with Disabilities Act Guideli...

January 08, 2019

Larry J. Walker writes: Over the next few years schools that fail to address whether their websites and other tools are consistent with ADA guidelines will encounter additional challenges. This is important considering that HBCUs are traditionally underfunded. Far too often, HBCUs must overcome challenges because of physical facilities (i.e., boilers, buildings, etc.) but meeting ADA requirements represents a new issue. Thus far, HBCUs have avoided a litany of lawsuits. However, it is a matter of time before they are forced to ensure their websites are ADA compliant.
