    I was told that Bevill doesn't give out student loans. I don't qualify for the pell grant anymore.....Ugh! I'm gonna have a rough time getting adequate funds then. Gotta find some other options. ADN scholarship maybe??

    They don't give out loans. I didn't qualify for Pell grant either. I got a Sallie Mae private student loan. They will accept those. My payments are $25.00 a month and I've had the loan for almost a year. It's called their Smart Option loan (pretty sure). Definitely try for scholarship if you can! Sallie Mae saved my life! I don't know how I would've paid for all this otherwise :spin:

    I have a friend that told me about a WIA test. If you scour high anof they will pay for your scrubs, graduation, and the NCLEX test. I'm calling today about it. I'm not sure if it's only for MS or any state but I'll let y'all know what they say

    I got my acceptance letter for Bevill State, Sumiton campus. Reading through it reenforced my decision to accept a seat at Wallace State. $300 for 2 sets of scrubs and a lab coat? Give me a break. Are they cashmere or Persian silk scrubs? Nope just the cheap ScrubZone ones you can order online for $9.00 each piece. It makes me wonder if they are willing to gouge students over scrubs what else will they do?

    It is true that Bevill State cannot offer Stafford loans. Several years ago they lost that privilege due to an excessive number of their students defaulting on their loans. The Federal gov't told them they had to give up either the Stafford loans or the Pell Grant.

    Good luck everyone! Just remember, don't take this opportunity for granted.

    WIA is not a test. It is a program to help pay for school if you lost you job due to the economy, business closed, etc.

    Yea, I've actually tried to get a Sallie Mae's loan but declined a while back when I couldn't get a credible co-signer at that time.

    I know right! And you need the money up front by next month and a background check done.

    I also have a friend in Bevill's program who qualifies for WIA. It is only for those who are unemployed(lost their jobs) I believe.

    I applied to both Lawson and Bevill..at first i got a rejection letter from Bevill due to a error on their behalf. They had not loaded all of my transcripts so it appeared i was lacking my math courses..imagine that. After a couple of phone calls and their staff getting all my things together i moved from their waiting list to being accepted into the actual program! Sooo excited! Lawson was def not my school of choice but i was willing to take that if it was all I had. So good luck to you all and even if your letter says no...follow up and make sure its legitimate! Oh my campus is the sumiton campus and im driving from Bham.
