Good news on my student loans!
I just got confirmation that my student loans were processed and I will receive them this fall (I applied for them late). So that alone is great.
But it gets better.
Because I was finally able to qualify as having permanent disabilities (hearing loss, learning & motor disabilities) I will be getting thousands of dollars in grants extra (which I don’t have to pay back).
The bottom line is I’m getting more financial support, and the majority of that support is not in student loans (last term 90% of my income was from loans) so as time goes on I won’t be in nearly as bad in debt.
This is such a relief. I was really struggling to even feed myself and pay rent last term; now I’ll be better supported and I’ll be much less in debt.
