Fund my last 2 semesters to success

I am a first generation college student and a third year computer information system major at Wentworth Institute of Technology doing well with a 3.5 GPA. I left Ethiopia and came to the United States in 2011 in the hopes to further my education and for a better future. 

Currently I work two part-time jobs to pay a host of bills: school, rent, food and now medication. With much hard work I am two semesters away from realizing my dream. However, I find myself in an unfortunate situation where I must finance my education before the end of this semester and choose my classes before it’s too late. Another unfortunate fact is that if I don’t register for this spring, my student visa will be cancelled. Due to my status as an international student, I don’t qualify for federal student loans or financial aid. However, I am currently on a partial scholarship from the school which doesn't nearly cover my tuition and expenses.

 Thank you for reading my story and for your help.
