Help Kendall Graduate

I finally reached my senior year as an electrical engineering student three weeks ago.
At this point, I am so close to graduation and have invested blood, sweat, and tears for so long I no longer have an ounce of pride left. This has become my last hope.

I just found out at 9:30 this morning that my financial aid appeal was denied because it has taken me five years to get to this point (because I was working a full-time job for half that time). 
They gave me five business days to drop all classes with no penalty. I was and still am in shock.
My only other option is to come up with my entire semester tuitition by September 25.

My boyfriend has already picked up an extra 20 hours a week to help, but there is still no way we can manage this on our own.

Please help me finish this six year long, at times arduous and at times hilarious, journey.

I do not expect to reach the amount that I am asking for, but any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
