This week on “Off The Cuff,” Justin, Megan, and Joelle recap what’s been floating around on the Hill, such as a letter demanding the IRS clarify that it will not tax the forgiven debt of former Corinthian Colleges students, and a bill mandating that institutions certify private student loans. As the start of the school year nears, the group analyzes enrollment declines in higher education, and Justin discusses what often happens to students flagged for FAFSA verification over the summer. Plus, Joelle explains why being financially savvy has nothing to do with understanding the student loan process, and the team shares common life advice they choose to ignore. “Off The Cuff” will be on hiatus for the rest of the summer and will return in September. In the meantime, you can find your favorite episodes here.

This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin, Stephen, and Allie catch us up on the latest news in federal spending, as the House Appropriations Committee passed a spending bill for education programs for fiscal year 2019. The bill, which included a few notable higher education-related amendments, now moves to the floor for a vote by the full House, and a similar bill in the Senate awaits a floor vote. The team also discusses how President Donald Trump's new Supreme Court nominee could have an impact on higher education and affirmative action. Plus, rumors swirled on Capitol Hill about a potential celebrity visit, and student debt moves into prime time in a new reality TV show.
