i was told i need to be enrolled for a minimum of 6 credits to recieve financial aid. on account of having limited funds for college and no credit, i have enrolled myself in a 4 credit class at wentworth institute of technology in boston and a 3 credit course at bunker hill community college. the 3 credits from bunker hill will transfer to my wentworth transcript. however, my financial advisor at wentworth tells me that i need 6 credits AT WENTWORTH to be eligible for financial aid.
so what she's saying is this: i am required to be enrolled for 6 credits to recieve financial aid. Why does it matter which schools i am registered for those credits?
also: if my credits transfer to wentworth at the end of the semester, why wouldn't stafford loans consider me eligible at the start of the semester?
i feel like she is just trying to swindle me into giving wentworth more money. wentworth costs about $670/credit and bhcc costs about $150/credit.
does anyone know anything about this?
