My name is Hijaz and I am currently a student in University of Maryland, College Park. So, here is my story.
I am actually an international student sponsored by my government. They pay for my education fees and give money for my expense but due to high living cost in Maryland, I unintentionally put myself in bad financial situation. It gets worse when there are some problem with my scholarship in which my government could not pay for my education fees and I could not afford to pay all balances in my student account by myself.
When everyone had registered for classes, I am still stuck in my room thinking what I am gonna do to not to get my F1 visa cancelled. I could not apply for federal loan because I am not a citizen and this is my last effort. I have been thinking about quitting study and doing some jobs that pay cash because I could not find any camp us jobs right now. The total balance in my student account is around $1000 from the last semester which I need to pay in order to register for classes. After registration, it would be around $11000 which I have to pay by myself first. I will try to find a scholarship after that and hope I could get one.
I could not borrow money from my parents because I know that they don't have such amount with the fact that I got to study here totally on scholarship. I have about 1 week to register classes and after that, I have no idea what will happen to me
