So I’m still holding my breath, but it appears that after roughly 1.5 months, SU Financial Aid finally got their act together and granted me the loan needed to pursue my MLIS. This time was nothing but stress and annoyance for me. Unfortunately there still are some issues but I’m fairly optimistic things will work out. I’ll write more later, but now I have another note of administrative disconnect/mismanagement.
I get an email from SU Housing with the Subject header: ‘Reminder – you have not yet submiitted your required ID Card photo!’
What’s funny/curious/lame is that this is the FIRST contact they’ve made regarding this matter. Whats also interesting is that they’re advising that I should submit my ID card photo after activating my SU email. This is the first I’ve been notified of that and have no record of how to proceed on that. I contacted the IT help dept.
Based on my experiences so far, I have a funny feeling that this latest slew of activities will be far from the last.
