My DD will be transferring to a university in the fall after graduating with her AA from a local community college. She had applied for a tuition waiver but unfortunately, her name was not chosen in the drawing. I know that we should have been more prepared but now we're trying to figure out how she's going to pay for this. We were told that the Federal Student Loan max for her will be $7,500 for the year. Our FAFSA amount is way more than the total (I have no idea how they come up with this figure) It's too late for her to be an RA for the fall (the applications needed to be in by Feb) and they generally only choose about 20 in the Spring. Those applications won't be available until August. Any and all information is welcome. I posted this on the community page as well. Thanks!
