For many students, questions still remain regarding how much financial aid they’ll receive to attend college this fall. That’s due to failures and glitches in a retooled system, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), a program of the U.S. Department of Education. WYFF News 4’s Peyton Furtado covered the story and spoke with Emily Schuck, vice president for Enrollment Management at Furman University. Schuck and her team are working “round the clock” to give families the information they need to make college decisions. The story aired several times on WYFF, at 4 p.m., 5:30 p.m., and 7 p.m. July 2, and at 6 a.m., July 3.

Other NBC affiliates across the country picked up the news including WSAZ in Charleston, West Virginia, KTSM 9 in El Paso, Texas, WAND in Champaign, Illinois, KHQ in Spokane, Washington, and WWBT-RIC in Richmond, Virginia. ABC affiliate KAIT in Jonesboro, Arkansas also aired the story.
