So I have been accepted to and start the RN program at the tech college I attend this coming January. I have a 4.0 GPA so far on all the core courses. I've been paying out of pocket for these classes, but there should be the ability to get student loans. The school will not provide loans unless they are local and private. If your taxes do not say you're dirt poor or homeless, they are unobtainable. I've been told "there is simply nothing we can do for you". As household income on paper appears too high. I've never heard of a school that will not get you fed loans to help offset the financial hardship full time schooling places on an individual and their families. I feel lost and don't know what to do as tuition is due in 2 months. Has anybody been through this situation?? Thank you in advance!!
