This morning I opened my school bill to see that my financial aid for next year was not included. Concerned I called the office to find out why. They informed me that there was a maximum limit on the number of semesters I could get financial aid for and that I had reached it. I had no idea.
Today I am writing to you to ask you to please consider extending my financial aid for the rest of this year. Without this extension I will not be able to afford to complete my last semester. After completing four years already this would be quite devastating. I have worked incredibly hard over the past four years to keep excellent grades and to be a model student in every way. If I had known that there was a cap on the amount of time that I could have financial aid for I would have chosen my classes differently. I was trying to make sure I didn’t overwhelm myself so my grades wouldn’t suffer. I had no idea my financial aid would be in jeopardy.
