I am finding it impossible to get aid at my school (Valencia community college in Orlando, fl) I am currently doing prereqs there and I called today because I was denied for federal aid and also for their foundations scholarships. I don't understand the scholarships because they are awarded, how can they deny me just because I am a second degree? I asked her if it was going to be the same thing when I enter nursing school, obviously it's thousands of dollars more and she said probably. So I asked how do students pay for school if obviously they can't work? She had no answer. I am planning on applying to a community college for nursing and I am scared it will be this way everywhere. How am I suppposed to pay for college as a second degree student? My past is haunting me because I picked a failing field. My Bachelor's was paid out of pocket by my parents but my masters was thru loans which will never get paid off unless I can go to school for something else. Their whole thing is they are a "junior college" and I have more than 90 credit hours and not a new student. Someone please help! What can I do? And pleas don't say fast web because that website is a joke.

What does WIA stand for?
Also I'm in the same boat as you sweetstrwbrry1, I got my AA degree while taking prereqs for the nursing program IT WAS RECOMMENDED. and now all of a sudden I can't get any aid and they don't want us working while doing the program.
I've never had to have a loan before..
I just submitted an appeal and I'll let you know what the result is, sucks huh? I'm guessing we could try Sallie Mae..
