I've been going to Big Sandy and am now switching to UPike. I was wanting to know if they do financial aid like Big Sandy? Also any information about the school is helpful,I'd just like to see what it's like.
Thanks for all the replies

Contact the UPIKE Admissions office, not TOPIX, for reliable information. UPIKE is fully accredited and issues financial aid that is funded from the federal and state government if the student qualifies. Seriously, contact the school and get correct answers.

How does Big Sandy do it, dry or with lube? UPike likes to give it to all their students dry. Have fun.

seems like you would have checked into these things before you decided to transfer there

I went to Upike. It is expensive, especially if you live on campus. Do Not take out private loans, those people are vultures. Also, do not take out Perkins Loans even though it's federal. If you cannot obtain employment and default UPike will not give you transcripts. You can apply for aid through. http://www.fafsa.ed.gov and then talk to the financial advisers. I will warn you they will not tell you have private loans companies operate. If you can't get federal loans, grants, and financial aid to cover your tuition I'd recommend going somewhere else.

Don't take out student loans.It is nothing but a scam.I pay in twice what I am suppose to pay each month and the balance hardly lowers,or the total payoff.My required monthly payment is $48.00 and I send in $100.00 every month but only about $20.00 is taken off each month.At this rate I will have the loan paid off around the time I am able to retire.And that's if I am lucky enough to get a job in the field I went to school for.

I agree.That should be the first thing to do before transferring.
