I take online courses for a masters in nursing education with Aspen University. The university is headquartered in NY and is accredited by a regional accrediting agency of the US Dept of Ed. I live in NY. I was awarded the scholarship then subsequently denied eligibility because "the school is not a registered school with the NYS Board of Ed" (a rep stated).
Does my school satisfy the requirement and can I rightfully appeal their decision to overturn the denial of my award?
Can the denial be reversed?
