financial aid officer misleading
Ask a Lawyer
QuestionCountry: United States of America
I signed up for financial aid for my freshman year in college before the beginning of the quarter on Sept. 12, 2005. The school's financial aid officer left his position and the CEO of the company took over his duties. Since then I have had to re-submit my information 3 times, and it all finally got to the right people just today 12/12/05, after . No one will take responsibility for the lack of organization. I was told upon signing up of previous problem pertaining to financial aid at this facility and was assured that previous problems were taken care of and I would receive my financial aid disbursements within 14 days of starting the 1st quarter. The quarter ends this week 12/16/05. How can I insure that I get my aid for this quarter? And/or what can be done if I do not get it before 12/16/05 or before the next quarter starts 1/2/2006? I feel I have been deceived and there is nothing I can do about it. I was reeling on that money to get me to and from school. I thought that was the whole meaning of "financial aid" and "student loans". Anything you can tell me would be much appreciated. Thank You.
