KIMT-TV
Most college students will turn to caffeinated beverages like coffee or energy drinks in order to stay up late and do some last-minute studying for final exams. But we're learning that some students are taking much more extreme measures to stay up late, to make the grade.

Where Tuition Is Free
Inside Higher Ed
In Germany the great experiment with tuition fees is coming to an end. Seven of the 16 states introduced tuition fees after a federal court ruling in 2005 freed them to do so, but one by one they have undone them. The last two states to charge tuition fees, Bavaria and Lower Saxony, are expected to abolish them in the coming months, making Germany an outlier amid a global trend toward the introduction and increase of tuition fees.

Same-Sex And Unmarried Parents' Assets And Income Will Be Considered On Fafsa
The Chronicle of Higher Education
For the first time since the creation of the federal student-aid system, the income and assets of all of a would-be borrower's legal parents will be counted in the government's calculation of the student's need. Until now, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or Fafsa, has collected financial information from only one parent if the parents are unmarried or are in a same-sex marriage. Starting with the 2014-2015 form, the Education Department will gather information from both parents of dependent students, regardless of their marital status or gender.

U.S. Government Reminds Colleges: Don't Punish Students Who Speak Up About Sexual Assault
ThinkProgress
Over the past several months, students and faculty on several college campuses have filed federal complaints with the U.S. Department of Education, alleging that their universities' administrations have perpetrated rape culture by mishandling sexual assault cases. But university officials don't always take those allegations very well. A University of North Carolina student was threatened with expulsion after speaking up about her own rape and criticizing her school's inadequate sexual assault policy. At Occidental College, sexual violence prevention advocates claim that the administration retaliated against them after they began pushing for better policies on campus.
