I get Financial Aid for school. This is my last semester of available aid from the Pell Grant per the new 6 year limit. This isn't a problem as I graduate with two BAs this semester. I only needed two classes to graduate, so I tried to enroll for part time aid when I filled out my FAFSA, but it turns out that you can't do that anymore. I tried to call the Aid office at my school to ask about it and they told me the school would figure it out.
I got my award information and it was for significantly less than I normally get, so I assumed that they had determined I was only eligible for part time aid. (Normally, I get enough to pay for both classes and books. This time I barely got enough to just cover the classes and school fees, especially with the tuition increase this year.)
Of course, you know the old adage about ASSUME-ing:
