Okay, thanks man!

Please note that my numbers may not match up with the school's numbers, but my numbers are correct, and if their's don't match, they are wrong.
I'm sure they are smart enough to calculate a GPA, but hey, I seem to know more than them these days.

EXTRANOTE: even though your financial aid is not showing up, go ask the clerk if she sees it crediting your account after registering. (I would suggest calling, but you wouldn't get an answer.) If it does, you should be good. if not, make sure you have money on hand just in case, ya know? See, you have to go pay them the tech fee anyway, so best time to ask if financial aid kicked it, right?

I used a GPA calculator and found that you divide your earned points by the number of hours attempted. In my case, that would be 36 divided by 19, and sure enough, it equals 1.89. I also calculated how many hours I would need to raise my GPA to a 2.0, and that was determined to be 2 credit hours (hopefully, that'll work out, as I registered for a 3 credit hour class).

At this point, I'm planning to just pay in cash myself. I paid the technology fee, waited about a week, and still nothing. Maybe I just need to wait longer, who knows? If I paid in cash and was eligible for aid this quarter, would I get the tuition money back? I know it worked that way with books (I got a whole $7.18 back - yay!), but would it work for tuition if I paid all the fees myself - only for the financial aid to kick in a week or two later?

By the way, forgive me if I sound like an idiot, but what do you mean when you say that financial aid "kicked it?"

You are not getting what I am saying.
Just because banner does not show you having financial aid, doesn't mean you don't have it. The admissions office does not use banner. So your tuition should already be paid, regardless of what banner says.
What I am saying, is find out if the business office sees your tuition as paid. If they do, don't pay.
Like I said, they don't use banner, and banner is not an accurate source.
The only accurate source is the business office. The place where you pay.

Okay, so I shouldn't necessarily rely on what the financial aid office says, right? That's the only place I checked with, so that might have something to do with it. Thanks for the help, dude.

well after talking with them, would you believe that they know what they are talking about?
