Financial Aid is always looking to give kids the boot. One friend of mine moved back into the dorms, bought his books, and two weeks into the semester Financial Aid was all like, "oh, you weren't supposed to be approved, try again when your GPA gets better."

I had financial aid make me redo my application 3 times and keep making stuff up for me to do, I went through this for 3 months, finally started school and was still trying to get it settled. I finally had to drop out. They approved me a week after I dropped out even though I stopped doing all the ridiculous things they came up with for me to do. One of the things they wanted was my mom to write out a budget accounting for every single penny she earned and they wanted it notarized.

This is why they tell you to keep all of your graded assignments. If have them, it should be a simple matter of shieing them to your professor to get him to change your grade. You should be able to get a grade correction sent to your financial aid through your schools administration office. They should also be able to rejoice your academic probation. Don't give up.

I don’t like to wave the bullshit flag on FML, but this story is preposterous. Your school surely has a grade appeal process, and if it’s just a clerical error, your professor can easily correct it.

There must be a lot more to this.

Honestly it could happen. I was in a similar situation I was so traumatized from a close sudden death that was close to me that my first year grades were terrible. I wrote a letter and was placed on academic probation but was able to return the following year. I did great, I worked hard and gave it my all and it paid off....but by the end of the year, because of my freshman year my new grades barely counteracted the damage I did and I was still placed on academic probation even though I did really well my sophomore year.

Uh... surely somewhere there is proof that it wasn't your fault and you can be reinstated with your financial aid. You shouldn't be punished for someone else's screw up.
