Why don't they tell me these things! (rant)

September 2nd, 2008 at 10:19 pm

So I checked my financial aid status last week and am informed that it can't be approved without my admissions being finalized, I check with admissions and they tell me they can't finalize until they have the transcripts from the community college I attended. Why don't they have them? I hadn't ordered them, I didn't know I had to order them. So I ordered them and waited a week for them to get here and processed.

Now I check online and they say my financial aid cannot be finalized because I am a Junior and I have to declare a major. WHY DIDN'T THEY TELL ME THAT BEFORE! I could have declared a major if they had told me now I will have to meet with an advisor and put in a declaration of major and then WAIT FOR THEM TO PROCESS THAT before I can get my financial aid. First it is one thing and then another.

Well off to class. It will have to wait until tomorrow cause everything is closed now...this is so frustrating.

    Welcome to catch-22 land!
    Might want to check to see if declaring a major is the last thing on the list to get aid, or just the last hurdle you asked about. Try and get the whole process - say "and?" a lot and "what else?". Also, ask the advisor for the whole process. Theoretically, they are paid to know. Theoretically. Smile
