Pursuing My Education

What do you mean I can't get my degree?
July 22, 2016
Hello Everyone, My fundraising efforts is to pursue my education. After 10 years of trying to get my degree, I finally completed the necessary credits and applied for graduation. That was one of the best days if my life. Finally, I can go for my graduate degree, so I thought. Two weeks until deadline of grad school, the university places a hold on my account for $4,963.00 due to an over payment of my financial aid. According to the university, they gave me too much financial aid in 2007, and I cannot get my degree or go to grad school this fall due to a financial hold on my account. There is no way that I can possibly pay this balance, and I have sacrificed for over a decade working full-time and attending class. It is very unprofessional to wait until someone to get to graduation and pull this out of the blue. I am devastated and don't know where else to turn. This was my ticket to a better future and now I unsure what that will look like anymore. If you can donate to my cause, I will be extremely grateful. I thank you in advance.
