UDC late on federal aid checks to students

By Washington Post editors

Thousands of students at the University of the District of Columbia haven't received their federal aid checks, because the D.C. public university says it can't print them fast enough.

Checks to 2,500 students are two weeks late, and it will take the university another week or more to get them all sent, according to spokesman Alan Etter.

UDC was caught flat-footed by a recent change in federal lending rules that put more responsibility on colleges to issue aid.
