Education Secretary Miguel Cardona has acknowledged the issues with the new FAFSA form, including delays and coding errors, and assured that the Department of Education is working to improve the process. Lawmakers questioned Cardona about the troubled rollout during a hearing, expressing frustration and concern about the impact on students and colleges.

The updated form was supposed to be available in October but was delayed until December, and many students are still waiting to hear about financial aid offers, leading some colleges to push back decision deadlines.
