College of Lake County officials have confirmed that four financial aid office employees were dismissed or transferred to other jobs after it was discovered they improperly awarded scholarships to some students.

CLC board Chairman Richard Anderson called the case serious and said it appeared some employees were "kind of in cahoots with those students."
