Question ID: 558445
I began graduate school in March, 2005. For my first semester I charged my tuition on my credit card. For September, 2005, I applied for financial aid and received subsidized and unsubsidized loans that will cover my tuition. My question is: is there any way to get financial aid for the first semester, during which I paid with my credit card? Thanks.

Hello annefu, According to Saybrook, "students using Financial Aid to pay for tuition" for the Spring 2005 semester "must have an approved student loan by" February 20, 2005. 2003-04 Catalog [page 160] Saybrook Graduate School ? Research Center https://www.saybrook.edu/downloads/academics/SaybrookCatalog04-05.pdf See also: "Academic Calendar: Spring 2005" Saybrook Graduate School ?

Research Center http://www.saybrook.edu/downloads/catalog/catalog0506.pdf I do not see anything in these files or in the material available at Saybrook's Financial Aid Office (http://www.saybrook.edu/student_resources/financial_aid/index.asp) or Business Office (http://www.saybrook.edu/student_resources/business_office/index.asp) that allows for a financial aid application in the following semester. However, that doesn't mean that all hope is lost. I have found that financial aid offices are good at explaining one's options and finding the best solution for one's needs. (I am currently applying for financial aid at a graduate school, and also applied for financial aid at a previous graduate school.) When I ask more questions about financial aid, I usually get more helpful answers. Perhaps you won't be able to apply for financial aid for Spring 2005, but there might still be a way that Saybrook's Financial Aid Office can assist you. I believe it's worth a try. Here's the office's contact information: "Financial Aid: Contact Us" Saybrook Graduate School ?
