My Daughter Kathleen transferred from MU to WVU in September. She started classes and even purchased her books. WVU told her that because she still owed $2300 she had to either drop out or they would send her to a collection agency. She ask for more loans and was denied so she had to drop out of school (I make minim wage and also was denied a loan.) It really upsets me because WVU just got a 45 million donation a few months ago so $2300 is pocket change for them. Shame on them for not letting her take out another loan. She has always been on honor roll in high school and on deans list on MU. Now she feels like she has to wait a year until she is considered in state so her cost would be cheaper and she would not be an out of state resident. She is majoring in physics and math and is a very smart girl. I feel there is no reason they could not have helped her some way. When she called the office to tell them that she had to drop out they did not even seem to care why? Did not even ask her if they could help out in some way. Welcome to West Virginia Kathleen!!

It's a financial aid officer's job to find the funds for a student in this case. In the poorest state in the union, on the periphery of Appalachia, where half the kids in the schools are poor, administrators at colleges in this area should have empathy for the good students who are poor. It's been my recent experience that they don't. Cold, hard merciless is one way to run a college. But, there are more civilized ways that these people can go about doing their jobs.
