1. Yes, I have fallen between the cracks and do not qualify for Pell grants because I have not reached the 70% completion towards my degree needed to get student aid, even though I have the grades and everything. I moved back home to save money to finish school and my parents make too much income (not by much) for me to qualify for grants. I also qualify for vocational rehab but that is strapped because of budget cuts. So I have to work to pay for my schooling and my disabilities make it even harder for me to finish school. My parents can’t afford to pay for my schooling so I am on my own and it is really hard. I will be working my but off this summer and still may not be able to finish my education if I can’t afford to go back in the fall. Wish I was spoiled like 60% of the students here who parents pay for everything.
