OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
The White House announced that the New York, Maryland, North Carolina, and Texas university systems have agreed to create user-friendly financial aid letters that show the difference between grants and loans, the cost of college, and different payment options.
The White House is also working on a standardized financial aid form available to all colleges that present clear information.
Why We Care
Because student financial aid letters should not be a foreign language.
It is essential for colleges and universities to present straightforward financial aid guidance to their students.
