I attended SUMMER classes 2 weeks ago, passed all my classes and should now be graduating tomorrow (September 1st). My school gives SUMMER aid, both PELL and STATE. I filled out all the necessary paperwork to get SUMMER aid, though about 2 weeks ago I had to resubmit my SUMMER aid application because someone at my college's financial aid department lost it! I also took out a student loan to pay for my living expenses because I've been unemployed for the past year. I was up at my school a few days earlier and everything seemed to be fine. My student loan paid out first and immediately paid off almost all that I owed for my SUMMER classes, and my PELL and STATE aid were both pending. I wanted to make sure that I was for certain going to get my PELL and STATE aid, and the person at the financial aid office gave me that certainty. They also had the Bursar take off any holds on my account because my aid would be coming in next week. I'm in the process of getting a job that requires documentation that I've graduated, and I can only get this documentation if there's no hold on my account. A couple days ago I check my aid status and see that every things still there except now my loan has been refunded. My PELL and STATE aid were still there so I felt like there was no need to worry. Come today, I log on to check if my PELL has paid out but its now disappeared and there's a hold on my account. I'm and independent student, unemployed, broke and in-debt with student loans so there's no question about be being eligible for aid.
If this problem isn't remedied by Tuesday it'll have the possibility of derailing my ability to secure my job. The last thing I would want to do is sue someone but I have alot riding on this job, like paying off my students loans and being reunited with someone I may propose to. Therefore unless this problem is fixed immediately I'll feel forced to take legal action against my school.
Could this just be an easily fixable quirk in the system and so I have nothing to worry about? Any ideas, advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
