UOG tardy with student aide checks

Posted: Updated:

Guam - University of Guam students who receive federal student aid in the form of a Pell Grant or direct loans will not receive their checks this month as scheduled. According to an e-mail sent out to students from the UOG Financial Aid Office, several months ago they upgraded their software system with a goal to provide better processing for awarding financial aid.

Although it has been successful, the office says they ran into some issues with student award files not being properly transmitted to the U.S. Department of Education, specifically the Common Origination Disbursement Office, which responds to disbursements of Pell Grants and direct loans. Until these issues can be resolved, students will be able to receive these funds.

USDOE is working with UOG on the matter and officials couldn't say when it would be resolved.
