Ah, the joys of incompetence at VCU.
Let’s say that someone, say a handsome young blogger, submits his Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on February 9, 2010.
How long does it take for this application to be processed by his public university? Over six months. And then only after two e-mails and a phone call.
He finally gets the financial aid request processed and is awarded a respectful amount of money for his schooling. However, a large portion of the financial aid awards are now not being credited to his outstanding account balance.
Then, on August 24th, he purchases a parking pass at the expense of $170 for VCU’s parking garage on W. Broad Street. On August 26th, the first day of classes, he drops by the Monroe Park Parking Office to pick up the permit.
What is he told? That they won’t have the parking permit available until 3:00 p.m.
Uh, what now? This is the parking office, where do you usually keep the parking permits? Are they kept in a secret depository at Mount Weather or something?
This university needs a massive purging of its incompetent employees.
