Students who have been waiting for months for tuition help from the state will soon see the money at long last.

Comptroller Susana Mendoza is releasing more than a half-billion dollars in overdue payments for colleges and universities… including more than $300 million in MAP grants for the school year that just ended.

That money has been on hold since a stopgap budget expired in January.

Mendoza says the money will stabilize the finances of troubled colleges and ensure they can open on time this fall.
