Online Education — financial aid
I enrolled in Florida Tech Online for an associate degree in accounting. And was assigned a rep. from University Alliance, the person knew that I was relying on financial aid to obtain my degree. I sent in my FAFSA and they required an IRS retrieval which was done. I ask when I would find out my award and was told it is a waiting game . I had enrolled in two classes and decided to drop one because of my workload and wanted to good in my classes. This was done in the first week and if I had the details of my financial aid award I would have dropped the second class and have been finished with Florida Tech. My financial award was emailed on Jan 20th and the last day for a total refund was Jan 18th. I declined the financial aid award and now am on the hook for $650.00 which is for one week of a biology class and an e learning class. I wish I had been told I had to be a psychic about my financial aid. I guess the joke is one and I am not laughing.
