you want to know what I find obserd about this freakin campus? The fact that a university with over 20,000 people, a junior college with about the same enrollment as TRCC got their pell checks at the beginning of september approx 2 weeks after there school started but for some reason we still haven't receieved ours? Want to know why! Because they put it in a savings account from what I hear and draw interest on it until the students grip enough that they decide to distribute them and then they have made some fast free cash while we all have to suffer waiting for the checks! I think it needs to be investigated!

I also hear that TRCC is slow getting the checks out and that other universities/colleges get them much earlier in the semester. Might be some truth to what you are saying about them making some money off of your grants.

TRCC just went through a federal aid audit and were found to be in compliance. Thre is nothing illegal happening in the financial aid office. Since I work in another office in that building, I assure you that they would like to get refund checks out to students quicker so that they don't have to get the hateful calls from students demanding their money. If they didn't have students calling all the time checking on refunds they could get their work done quicker.

Im sure that the delay is all about students bother those poor over worked people in financial aid...
I have yet to see those people be civil to anyone namely me. No matter how you approach those shit heads, they can't seem to help themselves but be rude, and dole out their abuse.

It's pretty obvious to me, that TRCC holds on those funds for as long as they can in order to turn a few more bucks.

How bout this, take your propaganda back to the financial aid office,where it will at least, fall on sympathetic ears, you elitist ass! I am glad to be rid of your school. I rank TRCC just a step below, Phoenix Online LOL at least that group of sham artists are upfront and have the balls to admit they are over charging.

I'm at Mizzou, and its the same as ASU. I received all of my money almost immediately. And on another note, Obama increased the amount given by Pell Grants.

Couldn't cut it at TRCC, huh? See now why you have left. You lost your financial aid because you couldn't make the grades. It is okay to admit you are stupid.

LMAO... Yeah that would boost your ego now wouldn't it? Take the hit you retard... You work for a lowly organization which has the gall to actually call itself a college. What a laugh that is.
My guess would be you are one of those under paid single moms that TRCC so loves to exploit. No degree except for the bogus MMA business degree which compares to a 7th grade bake sale as far as business goes.
So keep dreaming there, who knows maybe you will get that raise and treated like an equal. LOL

I can tell by your elequent posting that you have attended TRCC in the past. You were certainly taught to write correctly and especially to proof read before you post something. Your education has certainly paid off.

Is the reason you dislike TRCC is because they didn't give you the answer that you wanted to hear? You couldn't get your refund fast enough to pay for your newest tattoo or to help pay your bills because you couldn't work and go to school at the same time because it was just too much? That's okay, the welfare system will always be there to take care of you.

Since you seem to think you are the expert on this subject then can YOU tell the students why their grants aren' handed out when others are? Little help here... their waiting..

Oh and BTW go ahead and bash my spelling error above, and NOPE I DIDN'T PROOF READ.. I just ask for and answer for these students! One that isn't bashing them please... Maybe you should get someone on here that ACTUALLY knows what their talking about...huh? And another thing... I used to donate to this place... I'm even amazed at myself... It wasn't much, but it was from the heart. And it just ticks me off that a person that says they are an employee gets here and talks to the students like you have! Shame on you! Just answer the question... Why does it take so long for this school to hand out the grants that these kids deserve?
