This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin, Allie, and Megan discuss the latest news coming out of the Department of Education's negotiated rulemaking sessions on accreditation, distance education, faith-based entities, and the TEACH Grant program. Justin and Megan dig into the ongoing government shutdown and its impact throughout the country, and examine the newly-released beta "College Financing Plan" ED issued to replace the Shopping Sheet for 2019-20. Justin also gives an update on ED's solicitation for a student loan servicing platform, and Allie shares new findings from a report on what would happen if Congress lifted the ban on incarcerated individuals' access to Pell Grants. Plus, Megan shares a new stance the Federal Reserve has taken with regard to student loan debt—is it negatively impacting the housing market?
