At my current community college, I'm on financial aid suspension and need to file an appeal to get my aid back (I have a legitimate reason for my poor grades and can provide documentation. I was receiving a Pell Grant and two Stafford loans, if it matters). My husband just got a promotion and we will be moving to a new city. I won't be able to continue going to my current college because of the distance, so I'm looking into new schools. I earned so few credits at my current school that it won't break my heart not to transfer my credits.
So... Now what?
Should I go through with my appeal at my current school even though I don't plan on going there anymore? Does that affect whether or not I receive aid to go to another school? Do I apply to my new school as a new student and go through the financial aid process like a first-time student normally would?
I'm very confused. My school's financial aid department is nothing short of useless, so thanks for any help!
