I was a national student exchange student from USD to UAA. I asked over and over again if I was on the clear, all paperwork was finished and everything in line to go to Alaska. I was told yes. Until July came around and my financial aid wasn't coming in. No award letter of any kind. I called and called and asked what was going on but my phone call was bounced around from person to person in UAA financial aid office and student services. I found out what happened to my financial aid a week before classes started myself by navigating around UAonlines website for a few hours. I had to switch my plan and do USDs tuition to pay for classes. Not only that but UAA messed up my housing application and I did not have a place to stay after arriving in Alaska. I was forced to couch surf till I found an apartment that I had to sign a 12 month lease for and am still paying for. I could not afford my books and when I finally could afford them and rent with my financial from USD it was too late and I already failed some of my classes, which I had to drop with no refund.
