I am a student doing my MSN in Nursing, also not working at this time, and applied for financial for my education. Since my admission to the program, I have had major problems with the financial aid department, not receiving money on time, disbursements are incorrect, withholding money that they should have given me. Due to their latest mishap two months ago, they have placed me in financial hardship because they withheld my financial aid refund for this month and now I am unable to pay my rent or bills. Can I take legal action against them to retrieve back the money? This online university's main office is in Minnesota, and I am in the state of California, so I am not sure who would answer this question.
