Guam - Students receiving financial aid at the University of Guam may see a slight delay in receiving their checks. According to University of Guam Integrated Marketing Communications Director Cathleen Moore Linn, things are moving much smoother despite the university switching over to a new system. She says while there may be a few glitches when it comes to the release of direct loans or other grants, Moore Linn says she expects all students to receive the funding within the next three weeks.

She told KUAM News, "I would say that by mid-March, we should have processed 99% of these. There might be a couple that may have a few issues, but other than that people will get their payments. I know students look forward to that and I know they count on that for living expenses. So we at UOG are aware of that and we're trying to process that as soon as possible."

Moore Linn says student identification numbers will be listed on UOG's financial aid web site for those whose checks are ready for pickup.
