I have attended college with a pell grant, but due to circumstances at the time, including illness, I was unable to complete the full semester of college. Now, I have been sent a bill for a grant repayment. I contacted the school to explain the situation and even contacted someone on the pell grant website to explain the situation with me having been ill. They said it doesn't matter what the circumstances were, you still have to repay the amount.
I have absolutely no way of doing this. I have applied for every single job I can qualify for and have not been able to get one anywhere. I have no one who is able to help me pay it off. I have tried applying for a student loan and regular loan for the amount that needs payed off and was unable to get one due to the fact that I owe that amount. I need to get back to college so I can get a job, but with being unable to get a job I'm unable to get the amount payed off so I can.
Anyone have any suggestions or know of any types of grants or anything that would help me get this paid off? Thanks.
