SU System audit notes problems with waiver program
An audit of the Southern University System for the fiscal year that ended last June says there's no evidence that students at the Southern Law Center in Baton Rouge, as well as those at the New Orleans and Shreveport campuses, were informed in a timely manner on how to apply for hardship fee waivers. The university acknowledges that it was late adopting a system-wide policy on fee waivers, but says campus websites have information on the waivers. It also says it is taking steps to post waiver information via various social media outlets. The Legislative Auditor's report, released today, details several alleged errors or omissions in various aspects of the system's fiscal reporting and records. The university disputes some of the findings, but also outlines numerous measures it will implement to improve timeliness and completeness of financial reporting.
