Hello!
First of all, I'm writing in English because my Korean is short. I'm Korean but I lived a long time in South America.
My son received acceptance to UC Berkeley. We live in Texas now. Berkeley sent us a Finacial Aid Award Summary. The letter says that the total award year 2009 is $27,000 approximately and the estimated cost of attendance for non-residents is $50,000.
The amount of $27,000 includes Federal Sttaford loan, Perkins loan, work study, Federal parent loan, Estimated Cal Grant A, Berkeley UG Scholarship. $50,000 - $27,000= $23,000.
My worry is $23,000, the amount that we have to pay.I'm unemployed now and I requested unemployment benefits 15 days ago. For me, it is very difficult to pay $23,000. Please can you tell what can I do ? Can you tell me if I have any other choices? Any help? Are there any ways I should take to receive more financial aid?
My other question is after 2 years in California, the budget will change from non-residents to residents in California?
I really appreciate your help. Thank you very much.....

Sorry that there are not much of what you can do to reduce the cost.

But, if student gets accepted, defers enrollment and moves to California, and works full time, opens bank account in CA, gets Driver's license in CA, gets a new CA license plate for car and parents stop claiming the student as dependent for tax purposes, then your son becomes financially independent, and after living in CA for at least one full year plus a day preceding the residence determination date, he can claim CA residency.

Every student from out of CA needs to do the process.

You can try to get more PLUS loan, too.
