College Students' Parents Encounter Problems

August 11, 2009, 7:16 AM

The financial aid director at the University of South Dakota says more parents of college students are experiencing problems with tuition payments because of the sluggish economy.

Julie Pier says more parents these days are unemployed or have had their hours cut, so their income is lower.

Pier says colleges can make adjustments to help in such cases and possibly increase the amount of federal aid they can get for their students.

She says the number of students qualifying for at least some scholarships has been increased. Pier says the scholarships are merit-bassed.

She says many more students are eligible for the Promise scholarship, which gives $1,000 a year to students admitted to USD with an ACT score of 24 or higher.
