defaulted $33 in 1991, paid and still not eligible for aid

Postby mikki2709 » Mon May 13, 2013 8:18 pm

I had 2 student loans in 1991. One was paid in full and I honestly thought the other was also. When I applied and registered to school this past spring, I found out I was defaulted on one loan for $33. I immediately paid the amount due. According to the DOE, my old loan is on their "old system" and can not be removed until they get to it. So, I am not eligible for financial aid of any kind until they remove it. Does anyone know how I can speed up the process of getting this shown as paid. The DOE stated it could be years. Thank you! Michelle

I would talk with your school's financial aid office. If you have a record of the payment, they may be able to grant you aid.
