Darton responds to critical financial audit

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Darton State College leaders say they're working to address major financial and record-keeping problems uncovered by state audit.

Auditors say Darton may have handed out nearly $900,000 in federal financial aid to students who didn't qualify because the college didn't properly make sure students were eligible.

Former Darton President Peter Sireno was forced to resign shortly after the audit was conducted.

The Board of Regents plans to discuss the final report next month.


 

Wednesday night, Darton Dean for Advancement and Public Relations Tracy Goode released the following statement to WALB-

"The Darton State College administration has been working to resolve the issues addressed in the audit report. We are already in the process of putting the appropriate internal controls in place to ensure that these types of issues do not resurface at Darton State College."
