    The financial aid office person at Veeb told me the gighest loan amount is $7,500. Is this true. I need a loan quick. Any ideas?

    OMG I just Realize that was LOAN amount! I thought it said Financial Aid.
    UGH..That's another $1,500 out of pocket! Not including Books & supplies!

    Not sure of the dollar amount but he did tell me even if i recieved Full Financial Aid ,I'd still need a loan. I think that is because the PELL Grant is all that is offered. For whatever reason there is no TAP with them.
    I talked to him today and he said they'd handle all the final Financial Aid processing on orientation day.

    Yup...same here...He said, all will be discuss during orientation. He did tell to bring income tax papers(all required docs) w/ me.

    No tap, because it's a part-time school, and Veeb is privately own, so is
    Boces. Pell is Federal and applies to all schools credited by the Board of Ed.

    After lpn...I'm thinking jumping into the online program for BSN at Jacksonville,Fl...

    Their online course seems promising and it's a campus base University as well. I'm trying to avoid anymore loan. Veeb will be the last time for me to pull out loans. I owe LIU so much money for a degree, I"m barely working on. Hopefully, whatever facility I choose will cover educational expenses. I just have to make sure what's the catch. Little details they sometimes fail to inform you.

    I'm keeping my hands cross, but until then, I'm concentrating on Nclex-pn. One step at a time!

    NOPE!
    We wll be billed $400 for Supplies.. Includes Uniform, Name pin, Tote bag, watch, stethscope, accident insurance, & graduation supplies!

    It's in the paperwork you got with the info for the entrance exam.

    Shouldn't this be all included in our tuition. The paper I got was requesting $10 for picture ID. Nothing about being billed for Physical exam; I assume it's being deducted from the $10,000.

    So are you implying:

    $10,000 total tuition (resident 9500)
    $1000 down payment=
    ___________
    9000 tuition

    $400 Uniforms /supplies etc.
    $10 ID
    $500 books
    $185 for physical

    separately ....Is this a joke??

    Oki dok...I'll go read again. Thanks for the headsup.

    That pretty much sums it up.

    I called last week to verify the fee for the physical because it wasn't mentioned on the appointment letter but i remembered seeing it on previous paperwork. I was told... YES it's $185 but we didn't need to bring it on the day of..we'd be billed after classes begin.

    The fee for the supplies is mentioned on the blue paper you got in the very first info packet you picked up at the school prior to the entrance exam.

    I need a loan because VEEB seems to pop up with charging you for everything. I will have to worry about getting good grades and don't want to have to worry about money as well. I got a letter from CHASE about college loans 877-223-8025. They told me VEEB is not in their "School approved list." I called the financial aid guy to tell him that Chase loan department will be contacting the school to get the school added. He stated that would be fine. You may borrow up to $40,000. I have a bachelors and will not qualify for financial aid. I will have to leave my job and struggle being a wife and mother to a six-year old. I've never taken out a loan before and feel that this will be my best choice.

    I called Helen Fuld this morning to ease my mind since their program seems to be the quickest way to get the RN through VEEB. The admissions director told me you have to have at least an 85 in EVERY course and be recommended by the faculty. You will then graduate from Veeb in August and start their program three months later in November. You then graduate from Helen Fuld the following year as an RN. Sounds good.

    I was on their site today and pretty much gathered the same info! What's that saying about "Great Minds....LOL"!

    Nothing worth having in life is easy! I'm going to try my hardest to go that route. I don't have time to waste!
