I hold an AA degree and am thinking of earning a second one for a career chang From what my finacial aid office has told me, there is a limit of somthing like 160 college credits that a person can have of financial aid, which I have exhausetd most of those credits, yes i dinked around alot lol So basically once you have accumulated that many college units at the community college level, a person is no longer eligible for financial aid. Is this true? Even if i have never used any aid before. That does not seem fair. I hope i am making myself clear. I want to go back to school, but at my income level there is no way I could afford it without aid.
