Has anyone been successful petitioning maximum financial aid reached for a 2 year school, ie. CSN? I heard once I get accepted into the ADN program, then petition to extend my financial aid, I have a good chance of being able to use my financial aid extension for a 4 year school, at the CSN 2 year ADN program. I wonder if anyone has had an experience petitioning this?Since were on the subject of petitions, I have a AA degree with 140 credits so even if I do get financial aid extension, will I also still be charged the 50% excess credit fee at CSN as well? Im over 90 associate degree credits, even though I do have a degree so are they going to approve waiving that excess credit fee petition too because I have a degree? ~ Thank you for your help, advice and sharing your similar experiences. I know this is a long shot but I really want to be a nurse and I have limited financial aid leaving me with fewer school options than before so I am scrambling to find a program I can afford.
