    My daughter is trying to establish residency in Oregon while attending college. She moved to Portland, OR in Dec 06. She attended two schools (PCC and PSU). She attended PCC part time during the spring 07 semester. She attended the PSU full time (12 hrs) during the fall 07 semester. She worked 2 jobs and did not live in any school provided housing. Now we are into spring 08 semester (13 months after moving to OR) and she is still being charged out of state tuition. She appealed to PSU and was told that because she attended school full time in the previous fall, she could not be granted resident status. She has worked, lived and paid Oregon state taxes for 2007. How can I help her appeal this decision by PSU? PSU refuses to budge and I don't want to continuing paying out of state tuition. Because of this, she is not allowed to register for the fall semester until she pays out of state tuition rate for the spring 08 term. Can anyone advise how to challenge this decision

  • Why wont student loan forgiveness forgive my loan?

  • How much can you get paid to go to school?

    Best answer: In the vast majority of cases, scholarships are paid directly to the school and applied to your bill there. There are still a few that will send a check to the student, but they are mostly small local ones. Also, many scholarships restrict the amount of the award to your school's direct charges, and... show more
    Best answer: In the vast majority of cases, scholarships are paid directly to the school and applied to your bill there. There are still a few that will send a check to the student, but they are mostly small local ones. Also, many scholarships restrict the amount of the award to your school's direct charges, and don't permit funds to be refunded to the student. In other words, if your aid exceeds your school's bill, then the school is required to return the overage to the donor. Scholarships are meant to help you pay for school, and most donors have figured out that if sent directly to the student, the money won't necessarily get spent on what they intended it for, so most put some safeguards in place that prevent students from spending it on other things.

  • My parents keep preventing me from applying to scholarships?

    My ugly parents are the stupidest people on earth. My parents say they cant't pay for my college fees, but when I try to apply for scholarships they yell at me and beat me. They say they hope I didn't get scholarships and never go to college.

So let's say I take one class each semester and after 12 semesters, would I be out of usage from receiving the gant? Also, if I take one class for a semester and then withdraw from it, would the grant money be refunded? Last, can grad students receive financial aid? and how many times can one receive fafsa in college? Please answer all to the best of your ability and educate me!

    Basically, I am looking at getting a car. If i can get a £7000 personal loan i will easily be able to repay it in the instalments they have said. The only thing is i have an overdraft which i have unfortunately maxed out, however the only reaosn for this was because i wasn t earning a lot of money, however circumstances have changed and I have just started a new job with a much, much better salary so i can afford to pay the monthly instalments on the loan, whilst paying my overdraft back bit by bit. I know that if i was stuck in the same job on the same salary and aksing for a loan with a maxed out overdraft is a bit of a silly question but my circumstances have changed and will financially be able to afford it. Will they take these new circumstances into account? Thanks

  • Should parents pay for their children's college?

    Best answer: Many parents pay for at least a portion of their children's college education if they can afford it. Your mother may not be able to afford it.

    Best answer: Many parents pay for at least a portion of their children's college education if they can afford it. Your mother may not be able to afford it. She may have reached an age where she needs to start saving for retirement. You can take out loans to pay for your college education; she can't take out loans to help with her retirement costs. Your community college can provide both low-cost classes, plus financial aid. If you're serious about going to college, then you need to make sure you're taking challenging classes in high school and doing well in those classes. Advanced placement classes can give you college credit if you do well enough on the exams.

    Best answer: Part of the reason is the unintended consequence of good intentions. In order to give underprivileged students a leg up, the US government started giving away some money for college, and making even more money available in easy to qualify loans.

    Well, the natural process of supply and demand goes out the window when there is millions of dollars of money suddenly available to pay for college no matter what it cost. The prices at every college on the country started to skyrocket as colleges realized they could charge any price and still get students.

    Pretty rough on all the students who didn't quite qualify for the assistance or who signed up for a lot of debt that even their post college jobs did not pay enough to cover.

    You can start by taking classes at your local community college. Fortunately those are still affordable.

    My teacher keeps canceling class. We haven't had a class in the past 3 weeks, and she decided to tell us that it is pretty much our fault. She said she warned us at the beginning of the semester that she has more important duties other than teaching. I think that is unprofessional, especially since this class is preparing us to become teachers. I don't think I should be charged for a class that I hardly ever attend due to the teacher.
