Mortuary School

As most of you know, I have been in mortuary school for just about 2 years.  I've worked hard, made a lot of sacrifices and I am SO close to the finish line. Only 2 semesters to go!  I've been able to overcome every obstacle thats come my way, somehow, I've made it work.  

Now, I'm reaching out to my friends and family to help me overcome the this newest hurdle...try as I might, I can't do this one alone. With only two semesters remaining, I'm finding myself 2 credits short for my fall semester and 1 credit short for my spring semester. Meaning, I no longer count as a full time college student.  I am now considered a 3/4 time student.  Losing that full time status also means I've lost scholarships/grants.  The board of education has also made it so that I cant pick up a "fluff" class to get the credits I need to count as full time. Financial aid will no longer cover a class that is not required for your major.  They really are not making this easy on me.  

All of this is leaving me with a balance of a little over $3,000 that I need to pay the school.  Thats not even including the cost of text books (which as everyone knows, are CRAZY expensive).  Unfortunately, I'm also having a hard time getting another loan to cover that money owed to the school.  I'm finding myself very stuck at the moment, with the start of the fall semester rapidly approaching.  I need to have this figured out by 9/8/2014.  Oh, hello,panic. 

I'm trying to better my life, for myself and my 13 year old son.  And to do that, I NEED to graduate college.  To graduate college, I need to be able to attend the classes that I have left for the next two semesters.  In order to attend those classes, I need to come up with the money I owe the school.  This is where YOU come in.  If you're able, for whatever amount, please donate.  Even if you're unable to donate, if you wouldn't mind sharing the link to this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and love to you all!
