He can usually sign up for a payment plan so not all of it is due at once. You can still apply for the FAFSA after the date usually (I did it like a week before schools started) and usually the school will work with you to do a deferrment till financial aid gets worked out.

I hear ya!  My FI can’t get his car inspected because of his muffler. He bought a new muffler and we have taken it now to 3 different places and no one will weld it on. Say they can’t do it because the car (Camero) is too small under there to fit the new muffler.. excuse after excuse.  And he has had the AC worked on twice now and it broke again.  Frustrating.  He needs a new car but we don’t have the money right now to do it.  Maybe when we get his house sold/leased we can.

that is really wierd. Did he talk to financial aid or someone else? Last minute sign up? lol….maybe they have too many people in their school. I know our local community college usually is at 4000 but this semseter they are bursting at the seams with 6000 students…

Ugh! I hate dealing with schools and financial aid stuff! The deadlines are never straight forward and nobody seems to really want to help you out. I sure hope you and your FI get all of this sorted out!

I work at a university and there does become a point where the Financial Aid Office just may not work with you.  Most schools have priority deadlines of March 1 for the FAFSA submission.  HOWEVER, your fiance should still be able to qualify for loans.  Although I’m sure all grants and scholarships (an any other free monies) have already been given out, he can always apply for the federal loans.  Whether or not the university is willing to work with him at this point is a matter of their policy.

Either way, I’m sorry that this is adding additional stress to your life.  Good luck with everything!

🙁 I’m sorry… school is the BIGGEST stress in our lives right now, so I can’t imagine what this adds to a wedding!

I am so with you!  My DH has his tuition due the first of every month (payment plan) and that is AFTER FAFSA that he applied for last January!  We’re going to be so strapped, and we have to move to LA in a month!!  Where are we getting the money?  AH!

Argh, what a pain in the behind!! I agree with other Bees, I would not give up just yet and hound the Financial Aid people a bit longer. You know what they say about the squeaky wheel!

I know this doesn’t help too much in the school department, but I just wanted to give you a heads up about your cat’s shots!

If you have a Petco around you they usually do subsidized shots every Saturday or every other Saturday. I think I got my dog four different shots including rabies for a total of $50. I know they have packages for cats too and they were cheaper than the dog packages. Visit their website for all the info! Hope it helps 🙂
