Some College Students on Financial Aid Don’t Get it in Time to Pay Fees
Mayte Estrada hit a speed bump while trying to register for classes during her orientation session at Cal State L.A. this summer.
Estrada is receiving financial aid that should cover all of her tuition bill. But that money — typically disbursed just before the start of fall classes — had yet to be reflected in her student account. She said she was told by officials that until there was evidence of the funds, she’d have to wait to get classes.
