Help with financial aid!!

Published

Hello All-

I am approaching my final semester of nursing school! I am having issues with my current financial aid office and having to appeal my financial aid that is to be awarded to me. I was taking classes towards my BSN and that has put me over the 99 hours they allow me to attempt. Long story short, I am going to be lucky if I receive half of the allowed amount at this point. I applied for scholarships through my school and did receive a $500 scholarship. My question is, how do I go about finding other sources of help for making it through my last semester. I know that fastweb and websites like this may be helpful but it seems like a lot of the scholarships don't apply to me. I need help whether it be through loans or scholarships to finish school. I have already filled out my fasfa as well. Please help!! Thanks!
