Help Subomi not get deported

Hi everyone, my name is Subomi, and I am currently a senior at Stony Brook University (but I have an extra year unfortunately). I am an international student from Nigeria and I transferred as a sophomore to Stony Brook back in 2018. However, my family has had a lot of financial issues paying up on time. So I always missed enrollment deadlines and barely got to register for classes I needed. This time, it is worse as I almost got deported again for not being able to pay my fees on time. I am so close to finishing my education and I would appreciate any thing.

I have searched for scholarships, but my school does not offer any financial assistance to transfer international students. It had been weighing on me for so long as to how I would pay these fees. But I also lost my jobs and I am barely struggling to get by (if not for assistance from a couple friends). I have toiled so hard academically and my family has worked so hard financially, but in Nigeria, we had barely got out of an economic recession before covid. But now, things are worse. The school administration is once again on my neck as I have a huge debt to pay. I have been given a deadline of April 15th.  

Please, any sort of assistance will go a long way for me and my family. Thank you.
