    Why is it that private lending firms charging as much as 8.5% APR have been allowed to be representatives of the US Government when we were under the impression that Students Loans are to be capped off at low interest rates beneath 4%?

  2. Cindy says:

    I am appalled at the discriminatory practice that has been implemented by FAFSA! If a student has a documented disability and cannot pass certain tests imposed by states in order to graduate with a regular high school diploma they have to accept the alternative, a modified diploma! A modified diploma is not recognized as a equivalent diploma (although these student have met the credit acquisition requirements) and cannot receive Federal Financial Aid. I am speaking about the Invisible disabilities, Specific Learning Disabilities, to be more precise. These hard working, committed students are being punished for having disabilities. It’s truly leaving children behind!!

    Why aren’t parents offered income based repayment?

  4. Marta says:

    What are people supposed to do when they don’t have Internet access at home and live in a rural area? More programs are requiring Internet access such as the IRS Data Retrieval Tool information for postsecondary schools.

  5. Denise says:

    Am I eligible for financial aid if I’m undocumented? I am applying for US citizenry.

  6. Gene says:

    Why should he be able to candy pick the questions he wants to answer? Sounds like a staged event to promote a failing agency. Why doesn’t he have a town hall meeting and ask real Americans for questions, and look the American public in the eye with a answer??

    Arnie… I have questions your department is skirting..come ask me

  7. Sue says:

    I can’t claim my daughter as a dependent but FAFSA says she is. I make 8.00 an hour after being laid off from my School Board Job. This needs to be fixed!!

  8. Theresa says:

    Can I use left over funds from an Americorps stipend to repay a student loan ?
