Notable decisions and actions in this issue include:

  • The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board renewed the effectiveness of emergency regulations made in response to statutory changes made by House Bill 8 during the 88th Legislative Session.
  • The U.S. Department of Education announced that student financial aid data from the FAFSA will not be made available to community colleges until March.
