1.  Women's Soccer Preview

The 2022 NCAA Division III women's soccer season gets underway on Thursday with two major changes affecting matches that end in draws after 90 minutes.

Beginning this fall, overtime in regular-season matches is history. A match that is even after 90 minutes is recorded as a draw.

And the magic that is the golden goal is also gone. The NCAA Soccer Rules Committee now requires both overtime periods to be played to completion in the postseason.

Although we "supposedly" have preseason soccer polls from United Soccer Coaches, they are actually just repeats of the final rankings from the previous season.

Chi Alpha Sigma is the first, and only, national scholar-athlete society to honor those four-year collegiate student-athletes who have excelled in both the classroom and in athletic competition.

Founded in 1996 and with over 300 active chapters nationwide, Chi Alpha Sigma recognizes undergraduate college student-athletes who participate in a sport at the varsity intercollegiate level, achieve junior academic standing or higher after their fifth full time semester, and earn a 3.4 or higher cumulative grade point average. One institutional chapter membership will induct all eligible student-athletes each year and the student-athletes are recognized for life and never asked to pay any fees themselves.

To start a chapter on your campus today, contact Kellen Wells-Mangold, Executive Director, at kellen@ncahs.org or visit chialphasigma.org for more information.

3.  Calculate Student Debt To Be Forgiven

President Biden’s plan to cancel up to $20,000 in federal student loan debt sounds straightforward, but even a straightforward idea gets complicated in the details. Your eligibility depends on your income across two different years, the way you file your taxes and the kind of degree you or your child pursued.

Anyone who is still paying back a federal student loan disbursed before July 1, 2022, as long as their personal income is below $125,000 (if they are filing singly), their household income is below $250,000 (if they are married and filing jointly) or they are claimed as a dependent by someone who meets the income requirements. 

Use this tool to figure out whether you qualify for student debt forgiveness, and how much you might be able to apply to your federal loans.
