Financial Aid Help!

I am transferring to RU in Fall 2011. I am aware that the term bill is due August 9th. However I am going to receive financial aid but I don’t know how much or when I am going to receive it. :/ So, it’s obvious that I am lost. I don't know if my classes will be dropped if I don't pay the money I owe. I don’t know whether or not I should apply for a student loan now in case aid is not enough. I would like to know if anyone would be kind enough to provide me with any past experiences or has info in regards to my problem.
PS- I applied for Financial Aid before the deadline.</p>

<p>In your financial aid award status you haven't been awarded anything yet? Or are you still waiting for the TAG (if you get TAG)?</p>

<p>Contact the FA Office...see what they say. Communication is vital.</p>

<p>Also, be sure to check the financial aid site for any required</a> documents the office may want from you - they only send out an email about them every one or two months, so it's easy for it to slip beneath your nose.</p>

<p>I just submitted documentation last week and am still waiting for my financial aid awards. It's nerve wracking, especially with the term bill deadline approaching so quickly.</p>

<p>Thanks everyone for your help. I did receive TAG but of course it did not cover my bill, now I guess I have to take out a student loan. :/</p>

<p>do you get an automatic extension for term bill due date since you have TAG? the financial aid website says Aug 16 is the due date but my term bill shows 8/15/2011. I am going to go pay in person and I don't know if I should go tom Aug 9 or wait.</p>
