A cold front will approach the Brazos Valley later today. Isolated areas of rain and thunderstorms could develop along and ahead of that front between mid-afternoon and early evening. Good news: rain & storm activity will be quick moving (1 hour or less). Bad news: a few severe thunderstorms are possible with large hail and strong, damaging winds being the main concern. A brief, isolated tornado threat cannot be ruled out, as well.
A Texas A&M System audit shows the majority of $28 million in course fees assessed at its flagship university in College Station lacks proper documentation to justify the charges.
A review of the audit by The Eagle newspaper of Bryan-College Station shows Texas A&M University officials in some cases had difficulties showing money from the course fees went where it was intended.
The audit is part of an annual review and covered fiscal year 2012.
The fees, in addition to tuition, were charged for about 9,300 courses.
According to the audit, each college within the university processed and document fees differently and several didn't comply with university policy and possibly state law.
The audit doesn't suggest any improprieties with the money and officials insist nothing has been misspent.
