Thousands of students had their financial aid and loan information posted on the state treasurer's website. The office is refusing to remove the information for the time being because of limited staff resources. The treasurer's office also claims that the University was given ample time to edit the data so that student names and financial information were not included. Students who received loans, scholarships and other aid for the 2008-2009 school year had their information posted on the website.
