Help VCU student pay for last year

I am a senior at VCU studying Political Science and African American Studies, with a minor in GSEX. For my FAFSA, I was forced to apply as independent months after sending it in, despite having used my stepdad's information for the last three years. However, once my FAFSA was actually processed, VCU financial aid informed me that all aid had been exhausted for the year and that I would only get a pell grant that covers half of my tuition. Since I am filed as independent, I cannot take out a PLUS loan, only private ones. To avoid putting myself in so much debt, I created this in hopes that people can help me.
