So I am the first in my family to go to college. My parents don't know anything about the college process, nor do they speak english so I've been having to figure everything out myself.
I got financial aid for the majority of the tuition my first year, but I am also having to accept some loans. I'm a huge procrastinator, so I've just been letting the loans sit unaccepted on my financial aid account all summer. I accepted them yesterday and took the Stafford Loan course required, but what do I do now? Do I just select a lender and fill out the form and send it to lender and wait to be approved? And then what? I'm also kind of nervous since I start school the 25th. Will I still be able to get loans in time so my classes won't be dropped?
Sorry if this is long, but I'm kind of nervous about the whole thing.2 AnswersFinancial Aid1 decade ago
Where are ya'll doing your college shopping at? I've picked up a few things here and there, but I'm doing my major college shopping this week. What are stores you suggest and for what items?
I'm especially having trouble finding cute bed sets and a rug.
Also, for the upperclassmen, what are some items that most people don't even think to bring, but can be really convenient?4 AnswersHigher Education (University +)1 decade ago
Particularly t-shirts and hoodies. I'm going to orientation on monday and I wanna buy some merch, but I'm just wondering how much stuff costs on average so I know how much to bring with me. TIA!1 AnswerFashion & Accessories1 decade ago
