My college had me listed in their system as an on campus student for two semesters when I was an online student. This allowed me additional financial aid I should not have received as an online student. I did not know the error existed, and when my refund check came from the school, I did not question the amount.
After two semesters, FAFSA discovered the error and requested the additional aid back from the school, who in turn billed me for their mistake, since I was issued the money.
My question is, do I have any grounds to hire a lawyer to fight the amount the school has billed me for their mistake?
