    I don't know how anyone else could help you with this. You are the only one who knows your own circumstances.

    Why have you had to drop classes?? Are you having problems keeping up? Are you really ready to be in school at this time?

    The only way someone can help is with a little more info.

    I was on probation this summer. I went to the financial office and they told me it was when I applied for the student loan, I put that I was going to be full-time. Since I could not get the schedules to coordinate for 12 credit hours, I had to drop down to 8 hours. That put me on probation. They eventually took me off the probation.
    You might want to check and see if that was the case for you.
    Good Luck

    Why did you have to withdraw from classes? A family emergency? Health problems? If it's a very legitimate reason, to list that and to get back up (like a note from your family physician) would certainly help.

    Not to sound snobby - but most colleges do have policies that if you drop below a certain number of hours, or drop a course late into the semester you'll lose all/some of your aid, and still be held liable for the cost of the course. Just be sure you're aware of all your school's policies!

    Good luck!

    I've been there for grades...started out with a 1.88. Just be honest, tell them what happened and why it will not happen again and make sure it doesn't. We all make dumb mistakes, although I believe I went over my quota!
