Giant bureaucratic headache that will affect my student aid funding

Hey guys,

So I had a really bad year last year and deferred my final exams in almost all of my courses. At no time did I drop below the reduced courseload I'm permitted to study at as a person with a recognized disability, but because of my deferred exams there is no grade entered for most of my courses (though I just rectified one of those on Friday - wrote the final and the grade should be entered soon). I was sent an email from UBC on Friday stating that this could affect my student aid eligibility, as UBC would need to report most of my courses to the government as incomplete, which would mean I couldn't get student aid funding since there are regulations in place that prevent funding people who have dropped out or failed out of school.

Basically, I need to talk to enrolment services at my school tomorrow (today is a public holiday in the province of British Columbia) and get this straightened around. The regulations are in place to weed out wasting money on people who've dropped out or failed out of university, but I've done neither: I deferred my exams. I have two more final exams to write, one will be written on the 23rd of this month and the final one is to be written in September.

So yeah, if you could pray that I have a good discussion with whomever I speak to tomorrow and get this straightened around, that'd be great. I'm actually really close to graduating and I'd prefer this not become a problem (also I kind of need that student aid money).

Thanks!

Lo! How a rose e'er blooming from tender stem hath sprung,
Of Jesse's lineage coming, as seers of old hath sung,
It came a flower bright, amid the cold of winter,
When half-spent was the night.

Isaiah t'was foretold it, the rose I have in mind,
With Mary we behold it, the Virgin Mother kind,
To show God's love aright, she bore to us a Saviour,
When half-spent was the night.

O flower whose fragrance tender with gladness fills the air,
Dispel with glorious speldour the darkness everywhere,
True man, yet very God! From sin and death He saves us,
And lightens every load.

Financial aid is a headache to begin with and any added frustration makes it almost unbearable. You have my prayers.

Thanks man.

It's normally pretty straightforward here in Canada (or at least in BC). It was more difficult before the federal government and the provinces (or at least my province) got their act together and streamlined both application processes together.

My case is...a little less straightforward. Thanks for praying!
