So, I’ve been going through a very long process of working out various bits of meaningless red tape, trying to get my financial aid this year. Up to this week, I was still waiting for it.
Apparently, all that struggle was in vain, because the Financial Aid office is (only now) telling me that they cannot give me ANY money. They say there’s a policy where they can’t give a loan unless it’s for credit hours that count towards my degree. While the courses I’m in are in my degree…I already have met my required hours, I was just taking the classes as fillers, until I finished the thesis and graduated.
That’s all well and good….but I didn’t find out about this policy until TODAY. I’m going to go over options with various offices (though…based on helpful they’ve been so far, things seem pretty bleak)…I don’t know if I can maybe cancel the classes I’m in and not owe that money, they might do that…though I doubt I can pack up my things, move out and not owe for housing…I don’t know…
Saturday night’s main event hurt my financial situation…but now it’s just destroyed.
I’m not sure how I’m going to pay for the credit bills I’ve been making (for books and food), when I understood that my loan money was coming in.
I’m not sure I can afford to graduate…
If you need me, I’ll be under my desk, hiding from financial realities…and trying to manifest money with the power of my mind.
