This week, FAFSA delays, a ban on DEI, and more chatter about ChatGPT/GPT-4.
The Education Department officially announced that it will delay the release of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2023-2024 application cycle.

It is currently estimated to go live in December 2023.
