Connolly Posted October 24, 2013 Share Posted October 24, 2013 My school gave me a loans refund in August, and now I find out they have done a number of "adjustments" and want over $5000 back. I have used the money and do not have to give it back. This has never happened to me before and I know they must have done something wrong (I did not change my schedule or drop any classes after I originally registered); the adjustments were made because of a fellowship neither they nor I knew I was receiving, but was applied, and because my classes are online and not on campus. Is there any way I can get them to not ask for money back at this point? Once they gave me the loans refund refund I thought it was mine to keep/use; are they allowed to come back months later and say they want $ back? What can I do to find out (since they won't just tell me) what/where in the process the school might have messed up with the calculations/timing? It seems odd to me that they would cut the refund check so early and then months later say try to take so much back - it seems the process of sending out refunds should not occur until fellowships and status of classes are taken into account (like I said I never changed my schedule from the very start). It is loan money I will have to pay back anyway but right now I am in school and simply do not have it to pay back. I am 5 years into a PhD so it's not like I can just walk away and without paying it they will not let me register and would not let me pick up a diploma. Thanks!
