State Audit Shows College Students Failed To Get Financial Aid Following Tuition Hike

A state audit shows that more 62,000 college students failed to get the financial aid they qualified for after tuition rates increased.

A law passed in 2003, says universities are required to provide more money to students who can't afford tuition and fees. The state audited four Texas universities.

Only Texas Tech performed a calculation required by law to identify students considered a priority for financial aid. Texas A&M, University of Texas, and University of Houston did not.
