I need helping understanding my Financial aid reward. I'm doing this alone.
Hello my top choice school, UPitt, just sent me my FA and it breaks down to the following.
Federal Pell Grant
Federal Subsidized Loan 01
Federal UnSubsidized Loan 01
Federal SEOG Grant
Federal Work Study
Panther Pride Award
From my understanding the school itself is only giving me $7500. This seems extremely low. Especically for a student who EFC from the FASFA is 0. I'm extremely low income my family's income is less than $25k/yr. The COA at Pitt for OOS is around $45k/yr how am I supposed to even get close to be able to pay ~$23k/yr. Like I said I'm doing this alone. My father is extremely sick, hence the low income he can't work, and I don't know what exactly all this means, or if this aid amount is actually a good amount of aid. I just need help.
