Help me continue my education this fall!

My name is Francisco Ramos and I am currently seeking a degree in Architecture with a minor in History at UTSA. As a college student, I have struggled to continue my education in the traditional four-year path. For the past five years, my biggest challenge has been funding my tuition. Financial aid has only been able to offer me with $2,500 dollars for the full academic year since 2017 ($1,250 per semester), which does not cover a one three-credit-hour course. College tution has continued to increased at the university, which has made it even more difficult to stay in school. Because of low funds, it has forced myself to sit out for two semesters (Fall 2018 and Spring 2020). As a DACA recipient, we have been excluded from many different types of funding such as the CARES act COVID-19 fund, which would of totally helped me this semester. Getting a private student loan is not easy either, which requires a cosiger that is difficult to find, especially during these hard times. I am here today to ask for your assitance. After speaking to the university, I was told to pay $600.00 in order to have access to an Emergency Tuition and Fee Loan to cover my classes this fall. Not making payment arrangements, will cause all my classes to be dropped for the rest of the semester. Your help will be highly appreciated. By raising $600 dollars, it will help me continue my education this fall, which means, one step closer to graduation. I came to San Antonio with a purpose and giving up is not an option. From the bottom of my heart, I want to say I will be forever grateful for your support 

Thank you and stay safe!
