Urgent Question

Postby frankmorningwood » Mon Apr 27, 2015 5:52 pm

I've gotten admitted and got scholarship money and need to put down my seat deposit. I can't put my scholarships toward the seat deposit and I'm not sure I can afford it. Can I use federal loans? Options?

I think you should have a conversation with the school's admission/financial aid office. Maybe if they know your financial situation they will waive the deposit fee? Not sure. But contacting their office and letting them know your problem definitely seems like TCR

Yes. Especially if you want to matriculate to this school. I've heard of deans waiving deposits and accepting a sincere commitment to attend in its place if under great financial stress.

+1

This is what I do...as long as the person genuinely wants to commit and is not also wanting to hold their spot at other schools. I'll either grant extensions until payday if it's just a cash flow issue, or waive altogether if the person just won't be able to get the funds together regardless.
