"Hotmail users in the affected countries can turn the always-use-HTTPS feature back on by changing the country in their profile to any of the countries in which this feature has not been disabled, such as the United States, Germany, France, Israel or Turkey,"

You can get around it by changing your User Agent string, but I'm not sure I want to "lie" while applying for money. I guess the Microsoft tax applies to Federal Student Aid as well. Grrr"
