    Have your son fill out the FARSA anyway... I just found out today that if he qualifies you would get a reimbursement for any tuition that you have already paid. Plus he can always apply for scholarships for the next year... Good Luck & I hope that everything works out for him

    This child leaving is going to be the worst, because she is the baby We are super proud of her accomplishments, but it will still be tough!

    Oh we have. Still waiting to hear back from them. On a good note we just found out that his fire department is going to reimburse for his classes as long as he keeps a 3.0 gpa each semester which shouldn't be a problem so that is going to help a lot.

    He has accepted it for the most part. Yesterday was pretty rough as that was when he was supposed to leave. He can't do orientation yet because his HS hasn't sent his transcripts over yet so we are going to be cutting it close for the last orientation at the end of the week.

    I'm sorry... Hopefully he will enjoy college, and unfortunately the life lesson that sometimes life pulls us in directions that we NEVER planned for. It took awhile for the HS transcripts to get to college, but you would think considering the circumstances they would put a rush on things!!!

    @ddnene Being that he will be studying something he loves I am sure he will enjoy it. The funny thing is his transcripts shouldn't take that long as the Community College he is attending is tied to the school district he just graduated from but they still say it could take up to 2 weeks. /facepalm

    WTH?!! That is ridiculous... My son went to a private school an hour away, and they were able to send them within that timeframe...

    @sheshistory I have the best, I mean the BEST student advisor at college. Jaime, my advisor, calls the parents you were referring to in your post "helicopter mom's". Kids can't even wipe their butts without their parents present. Give me a break!
