Students must apply each academic year for federal financial assistance by completing a FAFSA form. If you complete the form, are a degree-seeking (matriculated) student at 1/2 time status and making satisfactory academic progress, you would be eligible to borrow a guaranteed Stafford loan. The loan amounts are based on your class year and dependency status. If you are a dependent student and your parent is denied a PLUS loan, you could receive additional Stafford loan monies in the form of an unsubsidized loan. The Stafford loan does not require credit approval but you cannot be in default on a current loan. If you are looking into alternative loans, they are a private loan that does require that you have an established credit history or apply with a co-signer who has a good credit rating.



Yes. I know all this. I was still denied federal grants and I can't get a private loan. Plus scholarships for students already in college are never enough to sufficiently cover any tuition fees. As I said, it's just not worth the hassle for me.

Returning library books too-why are you leaving us? I hope everything is okay??


I don't recieve federal aid, I get $250/semester in TAP, I can't get a loan due to no credit or co-signer, I have nothing in the bank, my parents are bankrupt... and it's not worth the hassle anymore.

no she live in Brooklyn


With the number of people not returning to school or just not returning to dorms. She will get a room, eventually. A triple may be arranged while the school straightens out who's occupying what room... She'll likely be in a normal double within a week or so.

Other than just dropping my courses and getting out of housing... is there any other procedure for dropping out of school?

Will/When is the 10th floor computer lab (T2) going to reopen... It's a bit of a pain to have to go all the way to the union when I just wanna check email or whatnot.

Then it's a good thing I don't have any evening classes that day, because 5 hours on the road after a full day of school doesn't sound appealing...

Why are the dorms closing on Friday night for the Spring Break term? I wasn't expecting to leave until Saturday morning.

It also doesn't seem wise to not give kids a place to sleep off any St. Patrick's Day partying before sending them to drive home.

Also, why is there only Meat or Vegan options... never really anything that would just qualify as vegitarian. Mac and Cheese is good... but not everyday.

There's a sign inconspicuously posted on the Tower 2 corridor that says that no one is to park in the S-1 lot until April 1st. It also says that anyone there will be towed. If there is such a harsh penalty, why isn't it better advised?
Also, is visitor parking banned from S-1, as well?

Of course there is... since they are based out of Lockport. The closest one here is about 1/2 a mile up Elmwood...

Amtrak for breaks, and my parents drive me out and back for moving. And rumour has it that they will no longer allow freshmen to have vehicles on campus. (Since there is such a parking hassle, they have to room here anyway, and there are free metro bus passes)

These buses are for the Metro system.... local city buses... Transport from home is your responsibility.... I, myself am from Columbia County, but I don't have a vehicle out here.... so it's not really a factor.

When you get your acceptance letter/packet... there will be a housing form. You can request a certain hall, but it's not a guarantee.

No matter how many points you have, you can apply to any housing. Priority placement is given to those with more points... But I'd assume that it would be pretty easy to get into the Towers since there are about 860 spots within them.

I wasn't asking for a hypothesis... I figured that it was general knowledge about how the community points were generated. I simply asked the specifics.

Again, how is this personalized to ME rather than my entire suite? Because I find them to be disruptive and whatnot to their surrounding co-habitants.

How am I personally assigned community points? The RA for my floor has never even been to our suite and I only know him by sight based on the photos on the main floor.

I don't want to be stuck with the same community points as pot-head/druggy roommates who play extremely loud music at all hours/scream and are messy...

(And another question is: Is it too late to change out of my room for THIS current semester?)

What is this about needing a Point Sticker and Housing License to attend the housing pick thing? Where do I get mine?

And will I have no say in my housing because I won't have any accumulated GPA from Buff-State and 1 semester living here... and likely no community points?

Is the housing cost for a single eff. apt the same as getting any single in Moore? Because I would be interested if it were in fact, less expensive.
