Just thought I would let you all know how things are NOT going! I had a personal meeting with the FA Director. He told me that he needed to think about what to do. Because I will have 179 credit hrs. when I graduate. He said that he didn't know how to justify giving me aid with that many hrs. to a government auditor. VU is a 2 yr AS degree school.
I told him that I didn't understand why they were counting all those hrs. against me because I all ready have an AS drgree and therefore those hrs. shouldn't count. He had a meeting with the FA committee last Thursday and called me at home to tell me I needed to pick up a form that my Nursing director had to fill out and submit to the committee.
The form asked about my GPA, how many hrs. I had left to get my new degree, how the person felt about me, how many pre-reqs I had left to do, and if she thought I would have problems completeing the requirements. Problem is, SHE DOESN'T KNOW ME!!!
I called yesterday to see what had been decided and the FA director called me back at 2pm today to let me know that yes they had received the info back on me. However, the new committee is an OUTSIDE committee and he had no idea when they would meet or when I would know anything!!
I went to the Workforce commission and the lady there told me that she doubted if they could help BECAUSE there are other people who have never gone to school and they need the money and opportunity to go to school before I do since I already have a degree!
This is how I have spent every summer since going back to school in 2001!! I didn't get my FA last yr. until the Friday BEFORE school started on Monday!! I am so discouraged. I really don't think I am going to get the money I need to finish my degree.
Would you all pray for me? Please?
I have absolutely NO motivation to clean house or get anything else in order before school starts. Anybody have any ideas to get me out of my funk?
