I just found out that DeVry didn’t “package” my financial aid for this semester. Huh? I registered the day registration opened, or nearly so, as I recall. I wasn’t scheduled to graduate. I did everything I’m supposed to do, in fact. Somebody there just dropped the ball.
Why isn’t that sort of thing automated so that doesn’t happen? It isn’t as if the place specialized in, oh, technical degrees or anything like that, right?
Then they inform me that because of their mistake, my student loans are also screwed up, and I’m going to end up owing them over $4k for the semester! What?!
Yes, I’m fighting this. That school has screwed up something every single semester I’ve attended it! Unfortunately, so did SPSU. Is this just a given with colleges? They only hire the incompetent, or they don’t honor competence, or what? I know that schools usually pay less than other employers, so maybe they can’t compete and don’t care to try?
For your sakes, I will not upload a recording of the bellow of inarticulate rage this crap provoked. I think it would have broken my microphone, anyway.
