Hi again guys! I hope everyone is settling in well for the start of the year. I have a request of those that have dealt with the FAFSA, Pell, etc. I am trying to wade through this financial aid stuff and seem to be going in circles. If you have any advice, I sure need it! Thanks................Wood

Hi Pat.

Be sure to inform them that you are a NTI student so that they can group you with the rest of us and process your paperwork asap.If not you will grouped with the freshman somewhere in never-never land. What I learned from this summer is ASK EVERY QUESTION YOU CAN!! There where times when the simplest thing would hold up my process. Ms. Shelly McDonald is one to have in your corner. She is (I think) the Asst director of Financial Aid. She will follow-up with your and the OneStop staff. Also be sure to check back with FAFSA everyday to make sure you are not missing things on that side of the house. I called them as often as I could to track my application status. I hope this helps.~aj
