Help Rolando Graduate

Hello! My name is Rolando and I am a current Senior at Pitzer College. I am the first in my family to attend college and am close to graduating with a double major in Sociology and Spanish. Unfortunately after my brother's motorcycle accident, my family has been under considerable financial strain and I have been struggling to pay my tuition. As such, I have incurred a debt of $3,000. Pitzer has told me I will not be allowed to walk at commencement on May 18th if this debt is not paid off in full, and because my dad has been the only one able to work in my family, I cannot afford to pay this without help. 
Regardless of my financial situation these past four years, I have worked hard to be an active member of Pitzer's campus by participating in the Latinx Student Union, the Pitzer in Ontario Program, conducting summer research for the Sociology Department, and being a tutor for the Spanish Department, among many other activities. 
After graduation, I will be a fellow at UC Berkeley's Haas Institute and by the following year, I plan on applying to grad school. However, this plan cannot come to fruition if Pitzer withholds my diploma due to my lack of funds to pay my tuition. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Warmly,
Rolando
