Financial Aid Question Regarding Mistakes 9 Years Ago
Back in 2003, I just graduated high school & enrolled in a community college. I ended up only attending that college for about 1/2 a semester. I failed 3 classes (because I didn't withdraw in enough time) and have two W's for the ones I did withdraw from. There's no excuse, but I did have some serious family issues and actually just couldn't go to school. I am now 27, in the right state of mind and it's about 9 years later since I originally attended college. I am currently enrolled in another community college. When I went to college in 03, I was on financial aid. I actually received the Pell grant. The question I have now is, will my current school accept my financial aid despite the grades/transcript I had about 9 years ago during my 1/2 semester? I did fill out the FAFSA paperwork online, I was told I am eligible. I am just worried this school I'm enrolled in will decline my financial aid because of mistakes I made almost a decade ago.
