The heat's coming down on Berkeley City College, as federal investigators are examining whether administrator Robert Vergas deliberately gave students extra financial aid in 2005-06, to the tune of $327,000. According to the Contra Costa Times, Vergas retired just before the Peralta Community College District was going to fire him, but he has denied any wrongdoing. An audit also revealed that the college made numerous mistakes in determining how much each student was to receive; of the 1,135 students receiving aid, 400 of them were giving either too much or too little.
