Pullman, Wash. -- Some students at Washington State University are still feeling the effects of a computer glitch that delayed financial aid payments. Already two weeks into the fall semester, some of those students still have not purchased textbooks.
The wait outside the WSU financial aid office on Thursday was about one hour. Students said that is good compared the first week of classes. They stood in line for more than two hours.
Washington State University said approximately 12,500 payments have now been processed out of 14,000 students who requested financial aid. WSU gave students an option to take out a short-term, $2,000 loan while awaiting funds without interest until October 31.
