ATC Hardship Wavier Failure


A state audit finds Acadiana Technical College failed to issue hardship waivers to students who cannot afford certain fees even though the waivers are required by law.

The report released Monday says the failure may have resulted in additional costs to some students.

Additionally, the report notes that the school was late in reimbursing $4,092 to the federal government and paying $514 to students related to Federal Pell grants intended to help bridge the cost of higher education for lower-income and some middle-class families.

According to the report, the school has had problems with the Pell program spanning five different audits.

In a written response to the audit, Chancellor Natalie Harder concurred with the findings and stated that the school has updated its policies to correct the problems found.
