  • Can i get free healthcare through obamacare?

    Best answer: It really depends on your situation. The general rule is you have to be working at least 20 hours a week or have a dependent to have access to assistance programs. I tried applying for Obama Care when I was 19, but got turned down because I wasn't working. When I did start working (I wasn't a student) my... show more
    Best answer: It really depends on your situation. The general rule is you have to be working at least 20 hours a week or have a dependent to have access to assistance programs. I tried applying for Obama Care when I was 19, but got turned down because I wasn't working. When I did start working (I wasn't a student) my income was low enough to get free medical assistance. But the medical card doesn't work if you already have partial insurance elsewhere. It's best to call your local assistance office to find out for sure.
    It's very disappointing those programs don't consider school a job. :(

    Hi! I need help please. I am a college student who was given a scholarship to play a sport for a private school. I went to this school SPECIFICALLY for this sport. I started the school in September and my season doesnt start until Feb. I took out a $12,000 loan to cover this school year and pay the remaining left from my scholarship. However, my coach was fired and now I am left without a team. I have only taken one semester at this school and I will be leaving the school in Jan. since I will not be an athlete there anymore. My question is - is there any way to cancel this loan and just pay for this semester? Or will I be stuck with a $12,000 loan and have to pay it? Im so confused on this process. :( Thankyou for any help!!

  • Do college not provide the full amount of aid you qualify for?

    I heard somewhere, that if you qualify for a particular amount of financial aid, you most likely wont get the full amount you qualify for. Is this true? I currently qualify for $15,400 in Stafford loans and grants, but will my community college provide this much in a full year?

  • Can I apply for FAFSA by myself as a high school senior?

    My mother doesn't believe that I need FAFSA and I can get everything I need through private scholarships, but this is highly unlikely. Is there a way for me to be able to do it by myself?

  • Do law schools give application scholarships to poor students?

    If you're too poor to pay for law school, I assume they give you a scholarship. Similarly, if you're really poor do they ever reduce the application fee?

  • What does financially emancipated mean?

    Best answer: It means that you are financially independent from your parents. In other words, that you are not receiving any assistance from them. If they are not paying for your education, it might be a good idea to look into it more. Students who are financially emancipated are eligible for far more financial aid. However, it... show more

If they are not paying for your education, it might be a good idea to look into it more. Students who are financially emancipated are eligible for far more financial aid. However, it often comes with drawbacks too. For example, no one can claim you as a dependent on their tax forms. In addition, you cannot typically be on their health insurance.

I'm taking dual enrollment classes and working towards an associates degree with my local community college. But I've looked it up and most people say if you're in dual enrollment classes, you are not truly considered a "college student." I put down my answer as 'Never attended college/1st year' or should I put "Attended college/1st year"? Thank you.

    Best answer: You would probably be charged domestic tuition, as you would not require a student visa.
    You didn't say what level of school you would be attending. If you attend undergraduate public school, you may have to pay out-of-state tuition rates, which are higher than "in-state" tuition rates. To be eligible for in-state tuition. you must live, work, and pay taxes in the state where the school is located. They will check to see that your lease/mortgage, driver's license, voter's registration, paycheck stubs, income taxes, auto registration, and so on have been registered in that state for at least the past year.

    Best answer: If you don't cash a financial aid refund check issued by your school, the amount gets credited back to your account. Yes, the school can resend a refund check if you lose it. They would put a stop payment on the original check and wait a reasonable amount of time, maybe 10 days, to make sure you hadn't cashed it, but then they would give you another check if you asked them to. Otherwise, you might just find you have a negative balance on your student account going into next semester, meaning the account shows your amount due as a negative number.
