Can you get a school loan for finacial aid. Until you qualify for finacial aid.

Maybe have a the kids and you write him notes before bed so he can read them when he gets home.

Ok your wanting to move...are you looking for a job where you are currently located or where you are wanting to move too?

I would put some of your better refrences on your resume or application, you don't have to disclose everything and hope they don't check. I don't know what else to tell you on that.

Community college is cheaper than going to a university. I pay my college cash out of pocket also. I take online course threw my local communiy college and it's not that bad.

Pell Grant? Based on income.  Look into bunches and bunches of scholarships! They're out there for everything from your height to your job! Seriously! Good luck!

Is there a reason you don't think you can get financial aid?

You should be able to appeal the decision. If you can prove that you were like deathly ill and were unable to attend classes they will understand. But if they don't over turn the decision you'll have to pay out of pocket a few classes to get your gpa to a 2.0...or that's how it is here at our college.
