I was told on two different occasions in 2014 , that the money showing 4000.00 available on my FAFSA letter that I presented to financial aid officer during our visit, would in fact be there. I was chosen from an alternate list very late in the game . I received my acceptance letter on December 20th. The college was closed until January 5th. On January 5th I was there only to find out that my financial aid was in fact NOT there, with the exception of 720.00 only. Because I have reached my limit. Had I known , I could have applied for scholarships as I have a 3.29 GPA (also completed the LPN program with a 3.85 in 2002-2003). But , since I had no idea there would be no PELL available I had not applied for any other funds and was told it was too late because all of the scholarships have been given out already. I was forced as my ONLY option to apply for loans on January 7th in the hopes that money will be there by January 9th because classes start for me Tuesday January 13th. I still have only 720.00 funding available for greater than 1900.00 costs of attendance.
Review College of the Ouachitas
The school is okay and there are a lot of nice people attending and teachers. I would like for it to be more activities for the students to get involved in.
At the orientation i loved meeting most of the staff and people id need to know. They made me feel welcomed and it helpwd my jitters about being a freshman. Im very excited to start classes .
