Help Hyper Get Her Degree

Hi everyone, this is Hyper Dash.

You all probably know me as an artist and animator, but I'm also a senior in a computer science program, trying to finish up my degree.

If you donate, please send me a screenshot and I may draw you something as a thank you.

I got outed as transgender in September, which caused my parents to take away my healthcare and greatly reduce their financial support. I cannot enroll in classes next quarter because I have an outstanding balance of $4,844.90. I need this balance to be reduced to under $1000 in order for my enrollment hold to be removed for next quarter. To remain in student housing, I need to be enrolled in classes next quarter as well. I need to be able to do this in the next FEW WEEKS or I have to move out and my ability to graduate will become a lot more questionable.

Long version:
I'm a 20-year-old trans woman finishing her degree in computer science. This quarter, I am finishing my capstone project class, which is a major graduation requirement. I currently have a GPA of 3.2 and I have earned 139 credits towards my degree, and I have about a dozen classes remaining to finish my BS in computer science as well as a mathematics minor. I previously earned an AA in computer science alongside my high school diploma, which was paid for by the state. I graduated from that program in 2019.

I live in student housing and pay just over $500 a month in rent, but I am looking for more roommates to reduce this, and I am usually able to cover it with my freelance art work. When I was outed in September, my parents took away their employer-provided healthcare as well as stopped paying me about $400 per month for rent and other payments, along with greatly reducing the amount of support towards my tuition. I have looked into private loans but none have been approved and I do not have the option to apply with a cosigner.

I am currently working on getting public financial aid, but because I did not file taxes in 2018 (I was 17 at the time) I need to get a nonfiling form from the IRS in order to start receiving aid, which I am not sure will cover my school expenses entirely. I have not received any previous covid stimulus checks, and I am not sure I am eligible for the upcoming payment but I will update this page when that becomes clear.

I know this is a long shot, and it took a lot of time for me to humble myself enough to ask for money. But I promise, as much as that is worth, that if you help me graduate with my degree and I'm able to be employed as a software engineer, that I will equal the amount I receive in donation to other people in need at that time.

Additionally, I will be documenting the journey of every dollar I receive with updated screenshots of my school accounts and payments.
