I was accepted into Cal Poly Pomona late May and faxed over my dependent verification sheets and all those type of things. I've been checking my financial aid only to see "You have no financial aid awards available for viewing in this aid year." I find this a bit odd since I had a FAFSA EFC of 01595 and had a message "Based on your EFC of 01595, you may be eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant of up to $4000 for the 2010-2011 school year." Yes I know it says, "may be eligible", but I didn't even see any Cal Grants on my financial aid page :( I was also accepted into UCM and I had Cal Grants and other things as well. It's worrying me how I'm receiving no aid from Cal Poly Pomona and I have no idea how I'm going to end up paying for my $19k tuition.
