• Why do students have to repay loans if they don't get the job or salary they were promised during studies?

    If a student has to take out a loan for 20k or 40k to study a certain profession, or major, and then after graduating they don't get a job or the salary they expected why do they have to still pay the loan? If you buy a car that doesn't work you can return it depending on the policy. If you have the... show more

  • Parents won't fill out verification form for college?

    Best answer: Some students just fill it out themselves if they can get the necessary information. Is there a relative, teacher, or school counselor you could ask to speak to them? You don't say why they are refusing. Is this a problem that could be corrected, fixed? I'm afraid that you're going to have to get... show more

    If you cannot afford to complete your undergraduate degree in the US, go home and study there. Your AA degree will be worthless. Next time plan ahead.

  • Would "divorcing your parents" or emancipation allow you to qualify for PELL grants if their income is getting in the way?

    Best answer: In order to be considered independent on the basis of emancipation, you would have to be legally emancipated by a court before you reach the age of majority, so if you are over 18, then it's too late to do that. If you are still under the age of 18, it's a possibility, but courts are extremely reluctant to... show more
    Best answer: In order to be considered independent on the basis of emancipation, you would have to be legally emancipated by a court before you reach the age of majority, so if you are over 18, then it's too late to do that. If you are still under the age of 18, it's a possibility, but courts are extremely reluctant to do this unless there is a compelling reason, such as a history of abuse or neglect. And they're not going to take your word for it--usually, there has to be input from professionals who are familiar with the situation, such as social workers or school counselors and they would have to testify that it is in the best interest of the child to terminate parental rights. Emancipation is a serious thing with serious consequences, and no court is going to emancipate a child simply because he wants more financial aid for college. Even if that were the case, you would usually have to prove that you are able to support yourself without help from parents, and if you had enough income to do that, chances are you wouldn't qualify for a Pell grant anyway because the income threshold for an independent student with no spouse or dependents is quite low.

    I don't know what to do at this point. I work at my local supermarket in the afternoons as a cashier. I've been had special education classes my entire life. I'm 19 years now. Right after I graduated high school, I got a call from the community college saying that my classes wasn't fully paid and they was going to erase my classes the next day. It's strange because I got a scholarship that paid half and I already done my Financial aid which covered the rest of the remainings. So I thought I was in the safe line until that call. When the man was talking to me, for some reason he sounded angry and rude. I was trying to figure out what has gone wrong but never got to figure it out. So I just worked the rest of the year in the supermarket and currently am now. My mom passed on during that year and I'm starting to be less interested in things. College is getting too expensive for me, I'm very low on money. I don't get paid enough to afford classes. Everything is too expensive. I have no interest of going into the military but I do respect the people who has fought their way in. I'm just trying to find an alternative job. I need help.....
