Financial Aid Maximum Timeframe Appeal Letter?

Hi everyone, I really just need to two more semesters before I can finally completely my time at community college so that I can transfer. This upcoming Fall term would mark my 4th year at community college but I just got with an email stating that I'm no longer eligible to receive aid because I've exceeded the time frame to normally complete my academic program (I have 5 withdrawals and took courses that didn't apply to my major because I was trying to find what I was interested in) I was debating whether I should write an appeal letter but honestly, I don't think I'll be able to attend school if I don't have the support of financial aid so I thought I should give it ago.

I would really appreciate if you guys can read my letter and see what my chances are.

    Every school has some sort of appeal process for Satisfactory Academic Progress and Pursuit of Program... But I seriously doubt that you could base an appeal on academic wanderlust and course withdrawals - you GOT the aid for those withdrawals. You can only get 6 full-time semester of Pell Grant - many state grants have limits, as do student loans. You sound like you have majored in taking up space. Maybe - go to work!

    An appeal is worthless; this is a federal LAW over which the school has no control.
