    Then you should have junior standing and be offered $5,500 sub and $2,000 unsub. Wiith summer earnings, you would have around $10,000, that should be enough for a shared apt and utilities/food maybe?

    Sometimes schools just give the lowest Direct loan ($3500 subbed, $2000 unsubbed) and then adjust it to sophomore/jr levels once the official transcripts come it. Usually all it takes is a call to the financial aid office.

    @Aroundhere, sorry I didn't see your question. I would call and ask the financial aid office why the student loans offered aren't higher.

    So I have $8,000 I have from my own account I can use towards college, plus my dad is offering $4,000. I might not need a loan for this year but I will contact the financial aid office to see exactly what I owe
