I have been approved for the maximum amount of the Pell Grant, and before books my classes only cost $1100. So I figure after books I'll only use $1700, so $1700 for each semester I would use a total of $3400, I should recieve a little after everything is paid.
My question is this. I need a little support to make it through bills, I'm not talking a lot of money, maybe like $5000 or $7500 (that would get me through the entire school year).
Can I get approved for a student loan to help with outside expenses?
If I can, what company should I look at?
I have looked at Sallie Mae, but when I saw that it depends on how much your approved for on the grant, plus what you are going for, I figured that they may not accept me since I got the full amount available. P.S. I'm going for A.A. right now general business, probably changing my concentration to accounting.

I would try and get a loan from Sallie Mae. If you go with a private loan, then more than likely you will have to pay a much higher interest rate. BUT, if I had it to do all over again, I would not get any loans at all.
