More than 200 Red River College students have had their ability to access student financial aid affected by pandemic-related changes to the college's fall session, which resulted in an overload of the college's data entry process.

About 90 students still have yet to see their applications approved, including Josh Sallows-Harrie, who is in his final term of the two-year Business Information Technology program. The college is working to assist affected students, but Sallows-Harrie says the funding delay has made for a stressful return to class.

Josh Sallows-Harrie, who is in his final term of the two-year Business Information Technology program, says he is still waiting for student aid approval after submitting an application on Aug. 4.
