Financial Aid... what do I do?

I received my acceptance letter as a transfer student last month. A couple days ago, I noticed that my Award section was filled out for financial aid. My estimated family contribution is a modest $1,840, yet the "Additional Need" amounts to $26,676! I really want to attend this fall. What are my options at this point?

    How many years of credits do you need to graduate? And how much do you want to borrow to attend? If you can't afford it, don't go. Go to a school you can afford.

    Repeal, loans, or you'll have to pull out of enrollment. I'm sorry about your predicament.
