Payback Negotiation

Postby guest123581321 » Thu May 10, 2018 9:44 pm

Leaving the program as I am finishing school right now. Going to have to payback and made my decision with the payback in mind. But, do you think I can make the case that, since I forego my normal government grants (Ex. Pell grant) that I could argue to get that amount deducted from my total payback debt since I had to give it up to take the scholarship and its government money I gave up to receive government money?

Since you signed the agreement to forego federal grant money, I don't think you could argue for them to deduct it. There will be missed opportunities that come with committing to something. But I do not think it can be argued that SMART is liable for those.

Welcome. The Unofficial SMART Scholarship Forum is fully supported through this banner add. In the past, I have relied on this income to pay for all hosting and domain charges, but it has only covered half of my expenses in recent years. If this is the first time you are seeing a banner here, it is because an adblocker has prevented it from appearing (I don't blame you). If you have found this forum valuable, I would appreciate it if you consider supporting its upkeep.
