I will be a freshman this coming August at a private college. I got an impressive amount of scholarships both because of financial need and merit. My school disburses funds left over around September 14th, but school starts August 21st. I need money to buy my plane ticket (school is across the country), a computer, my supplies, my textbooks, pretty much everything. My parents are not currently supporting me and what I make right now goes toward basic living expenses. What can I do here? Is it even heard of for schools to give money to students beforehand in situations like this?
