  • Why give a $1.5 trillion tax cut to the super rich when students owe $1.5 trillion in debt?

    With that money we could’ve eliminated that debt. That would’ve been amazing. It would put tens of millions of people in a MUCH better financial situation. It would significantly boost the economy as people now have more money to spend. The tax cut for the rich clearly didn’t work.

    If there’s anyone out there that can answer my question please help. I got a scholarship from my college that requires my FASFA in order to give an estimate of how much I was given finacially by them. In order to get understand how much I was given My mother needed to file taxes (something she hasn’t done at all) My mother filed taxes recently so I can recieve a transcript for school. She has filed but unfortunately she was given a refund and now has to go through a verification process. We don’t even care for the refund we just want the transcript! My school has let me take my classes even though my financial aid wasn’t finalized yet because of the tax circumstances and how long it can take to get a tax transcript. But apparently the irs didn’t send a letter for verification until 6 weeks after we sumitted the tax return. They said it will take 9 weeks to process the tax return and recieve my refund but, will I still be able to get a tax transcript? I don’t have much time left first semester is almost over and I need to be able to have that that transcript in so I can keep my scholarship.

Conviction for such a violation may result in imprisonment for up to five years and/or a fine of not more than $250,000.

Conviction for such a violation may result in imprisonment for up to five years and/or a fine of not more than $250,000. If you fail to register before your 26th birthday you will no longer be able to do so. Not being registered will cause you to be denied federal student financial aid, federal job training, federal employment, and U.S. citizenship (if not already a citizen). Call the social security office and schedule an appointment to discuss the issue with your social security information.

    So I enrolled into college after high school as the normal graduate would. I was accepted for financial aid and went for a semester and the next semester was denied the aid due to academic standards. That was waived and that semester was paid off. However, my college had sent me a letter after that first semester stating that if my gpa had not risen above the standard that I would be released from the college. So all in all, about halfway through my second semester I had enlisted into the military and completely dumped the whole college scene. My college sent a letter stating that I was taken out of the program and basically released from the school. Mind you, both semesters I was there (fall 2017, spring 2018) it’s been paid off by financial aid. I enlisted in the middle of the spring semester. Come around the middle of September and I receive a text stating I’m supposed to pay for the spring semester that I was not there for, I was in boot camp pretty much that whole semester. It stated it’s a debt and that if it’s not paid it’ll go to collections. Where do I go from here? Am I actually supposed to pay this? Consequences? Basically fill me in with everything.

    Hello! I graduated from a 4 year university this past May. I was on academic and athletic scholarship and was under the impression that I was not paying for my school because of all the scholarships. I began receiving emails in October 2018 from Great Lakes (loan company) saying that my first loan payment is due in a few months (Dec 2018). I had began receiving emails from Great Lakes back in 2014, but just thought it was a loan company trying to get me to take a loan out through them. Whenever I attempted to log in, it said no account found. I also had never even heard of Great Lakes and neither had my parents. Turns out, 4 separate loans totaling $27,000 were accumulating under my name. I had never, not once, received notification that these loans were being taken out or were re-occurring. I went back to the site, made an account, and logged in for the first time in 4 years to this surprise. I went back and checked the Master Promissory Note (MPN) and I did electronically sign it. Also, in my university's financial records, the loan is clearly stated for each semester. I just was not aware what it was. I am fine with paying back the loan, but I am pissed that this was a complete surprise and I never not ONCE received anything from Great Lakes making me aware of these loans. I didn't even know Great Lakes was the provider. My main question is: Do you think I should pursue further legal help regarding the lack of notice and disclosure of the loans?

One friend was telling me that you don't have to report that to them if you made under $10,000. Do I still need to report it and they'll count it as making under and receive a good amount of Grant for my tuition or do I just report on the FAFSA that I made no income?

  • Will my mother get an email notification if I add a school to my FAFSA?

    Best answer: When a change occurs on the FAFSA, notification is sent to the student's email. So, unless you used an email your mother has access to, she wouldn't receive the notice. However, in order to receive a financial aid package, you generally have to be accepted by the school. Which means you have to apply,... show more
    Best answer: When a change occurs on the FAFSA, notification is sent to the student's email. So, unless you used an email your mother has access to, she wouldn't receive the notice. However, in order to receive a financial aid package, you generally have to be accepted by the school. Which means you have to apply, and once you apply, you'll receive lots of contacts from that school, which greatly increases the chances that mom will find out. Even assuming she doesn't find out now, and you receive a financial aid award letter, what's the next step? How will you manage to attend this school and pay the bill without her knowing about it? It seems to me that it would make more sense to be upfront about it now. It's hard to think about being separated from your boyfriend, but you're mom's probably right: choosing a college just because it's closer to him isn't a great idea. College is a huge investment, and you should base your decision on factors like the quality of education you're going to get. Unless you're going to the same college and rooming together, you're really not going to see much of your boyfriend anyway, so what does it matter if you're 10 miles or 100 miles apart? If your relationship is meant to be, it will survive the separation. If not, then you might be glad you picked a college that had something else to offer.

    I recently got accepted into my schools nursing program for an associates degree. However, I cannot afford it. My parents cannot help and I cannot get a loan. I do not receive financial aid. I have been paying everything out of pocket. My parents say I should wait until I am 23 because I am considered an "adult' and I could possibly get some aid. I am 20. I would have to wait three more years. They say I can always go back to school anytime. Have any you guys been in this situation? Did you apply for the next semester and just worked? Or did you do a lpn program and bridged to rn? Any advice?
