during the previous spring semester I have applied as an undergraduate student and attended some of the classes that were suggested by my advisors as an international student before enrolling in a Masters degree . I have been admitted to University of **** with an undergraduate transfer student status and offered a Pell grant. knowing that I have submitted all of my documents and transcripts(including my bachelors)to the admissions committee .Now that I am applying for a masters my financial aid was not processed, going to check on that Mrs**** informed me that I was not supposed to receive a Pell due to my previous degree, my question was how did that happen in the first time? thats when Mrs**** stated and confirmed that it was an admissions mistake or delay. later they send me a bill
