JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A former Arkansas State University chancellor has repaid money he was previously reimbursed for lodging in Mexico after an audit showed that university partners in Mexico had already covered the expense.

The Arkansas Business (https://bit.ly/2faUtWw ) reports that Tim Hudson repaid the $1,671.92 after Arkansas State asked Hudson by email to repay what he was reimbursed. The internal audit reveals that Arkansas State University Campus Querétaro partners in Mexico had already paid for lodging expenses.

ASU System President Chuck Welch says they found no wrongdoing by the university’s partners.

Welch requested the recent review after learning of irregularities in Hudson’s travel reimbursements. The former chancellor resigned in August after reports of a previous audit showing possible violations of state law by Hudson.

The recent audit report gives a number of recommendations to the school to prevent future problems.
