Due a Pell Refund?

aynatal2000aynatal2000 Registered User Posts: 6 New Member
My daughter has a Pell grant, ACG and Tap for the 2009/2010 year at Nassau community college.All of her tuition has been covered.She received a refund of $400.00 inMarch after the last tuition payments were made.She still has750.00 due from Pell ( it hit her school account 5/04/10) and 188.00 on her ACG(that also hit her school account 5/04/10).Will she be receiving a refund of the 750.00 Pell and/or ACG or will they return it due to the fact that there is nothing to pay... all costs were covered in March.

Please advise.With the prospect of no job for her this summer( and she is killing herself looking) and the economic down turn having me work 2 jobs, I am at my wits end.

    She should be refunded the excess...there doesn't have to be a balance due to the school in any case as the COA includes unbilled expenses such as books, transportation, etc.

    Thanks Sk8termom for answering so promptly.I am hoping this is true and she does get the refund.She can use it... and I can use the relief.Imagine for a little while not having to cover all of her expenses or school emergency expenses... or term paper expenses ( ink, paper,pc etc)

    You can certainly call the FA office to find out when they intend to refund. It is odd that the Pell and ACG weren't credited until May though. Are you sure this is for spring semester? Is she taking summer classes?

    Not yet.We were thinking about it but some things are so pressing for her(clothing,transportation,pc and printer supplies),that we wanted to be sure of what she could get for tuition and expenses.NCC pays aid to student account twice per semester; this payment was tentatively scheduled to be received as of 4/26.The first payment for the Spring was 3/15.
