So I'll be brief - I'm a student receiving full financial aid (no family, hellapoor), and I had to take a leave of absence. I now owe several thousand dollars to the university, and if I don't pay them, I can't return.
I've explained to them that I am ineligible for private student loans (no income, no cosigners), and federal loans won't work because of the way my aid package is structured (my aid package covers my COA fully, so I'm ineligible for fed. loans - and besides, fed. loans won't cover balances from prior semesters). I've appealed this to my adviser, some people in SFS, and the president's office, and am waiting for a response, but I'm not assuming I'm going to have a favorable one. Anyone had a similar situation that can give me advice as to how to go about this? I'd like to return, but I can't afford to pay the balance, and I can't afford to have the balance taken from my fall semester's financial aid, as I'll literally have nothing to live on, and due to my medical issues, I can't take a full load and carry a full time job at the same time. Thanks for reading.
