San Diego State U. financial aid Complaint - Financial aid dispersment

Review by Shan83181@aol.com on 2002-01-15
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- Hello, I have applied and received financial aid from your university. I received a sufficient amount of money, which should go towards my tuition and other academic-related expenses. What displeases me is that the financial aid is awarded to me the week before school starts, which I find very inconvient. I have to rely on relatives to help me out with textbook money.

To help keep me as a potential future customer, I would like the following:

I would like for the financial aid to be dispersed to me at least 2 weeks prior to when classes start. I do not appreciate having to go to other people and asking them for textbook money.

At the very least I would like a response from your company regarding this incident. Thank you for your time.

It is very rude of you to ask for money and then complain that you didn't get fast enough. You should be grateful that you are getting the money at all.

Have you seen the HARTFORD commercials asking "WILL YOUR FINANCIAL TUITION BE THERE HERE OR THERE"?? IF IT'S FROM HARTFORD IT'S "NEVER "

My school send financial aid checks to students 2 week after classes start, any I am fine with that. At least they give me some money.
If you go to work, no employer pay you up front. The financial aid is for the whole semeter, they have already given it to you up front, one week before class start. What else do you ask for?

Welcome to the life of a student.

The financial aid is rarely available when you register for classes or need to buy books and supplies, unless you are going to one of those private vocational schools. Fortunately for you, you have friends and relatives you can fall back on. Many students do not, and in this case I must agree that you have nothing to complain about. At a time when many students are being told they can't get help with paying for school, you should count your blessings you got any help from anyone at all. I had to drop out of school this semester because I couldn't qualify for any aid at all (in one case, I was told I was too smart, too light skinned, and didn't have a thick enough accent).
