  1. I really wish ED could have kicked off this initiative without throwing college financial aid offices under the bus. Your graphic, with it’s “Tired of waiting in line at the financial aid office?” tagline is a cheap shot. I work at a college of 19k students. We were open for business for 9 hours on 11/28, and just like most days, at no time was there a line of students waiting for help in our lobby. (And you can bet students and parents got answers from us that were more than 140 characters in length.)

  2. Most Masters degree programs require a student a student to complete their Masters degree programs in 8 years or less. If you start a Masters degree program complete a semester(Fall2001)than go to work return to school 10 years later(Fall2011). Can the Two grades that you received be used to deny an individual financial aid in a different Masters degree program at the same university. Even if you are telling the school the grades you are baseing your decision on aren’t the ones I earned 10 years ago.

  3. Can a online college used your pell grant when you tell them you want it to come to you? I was told that they can do what ever they want with my pell grant it is not up to me. I was told to withdraw and find another online school, I am disabled.

  4. I haven’t being able to start studies because in my federal aid application my personal information does not match with my social security number. I visit the social security office in PR and the officer did not found any problem. He gave me the certification letter stating that my social security match my personal information. What else should I do?

  5. I noticed that a person’s financial aide can be reduced if they have taught a certain amount of years in a low income (Title 1) school district. Can you check to see if my school district falls under this title? It is Anton ISD in Anton Texas. We have gone to one campus because of money. We are also Title 1. I have taught here twenty three years.

    Thank you,
    Anita Young

  6. Has student- loan fraud been reduced, now that the Department of Education is very active in the lending process?
