LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The Arkansas Department of Higher Education has stepped in to help out Arkansas Baptist College with its financial aid woes.
ADHE leaders said they agreed to help the college after President Fitz Hill asked for it.
Due to a system hack, financial aid advisors are manually processing applications.
The government shutdown isn't making things better either with many of the people who accept the aid requests in Washington, D.C., are on furlough.
The agency is serving as the liaison for the school and the media. They're also helping to find retired financial aid advisors and others who'd like to help out the college.
"These issues are flexible and solvable. Some of it's going to take a little time, but it's a great school. They're going to get a great education," Broadway said.
A new financial aid director started at the college Thursday.
