Hello to all!!!
I have spoken about this problem before but I will give a very brief outline for those who are unware:
I took a loan out in Spring 03, I never attended or registered so I assumed loan was never sent to school. I find out earlier this year it was and school has been holding on to it. After months of going back and forth school finally acknowledges that they have money and will send it back. That took another month but it was finally sent back.
I go to my current school and they look up my record on a loan clearinghouse site (nslds) and say that the loan refund was never posted so it still looks like I owe the full amount (10500 instead of 5500). I am very near my limits so they will not let me apply for a loan for the fall. They say go to my previous school and have them report the changes to nslds. I go there and they say we do not handle things like that you have to contact SallieMae. I call SallieMae and they say that they do not do that either to call my guarantor of my loan (NYS) and see if they will report the changes.
If they will not report the change who the heck can then??? I have been getting the run around since the start of this drama and I am getting ticked off.
I plan on taking private student loans out for the Spring and after but I want to see which nursing program I get into (ADN or BSN). I will find out in the fall.
I am really getting depressed over this. I finally something that I enjoy and like going school for and now I cannot afford to attend. This sucks....
Any suggestions on how to get someone to report changes will be greatly appreciated.
