Consumer Complaint: TO : Department of Education RE : 2nd Round Dispute XXXX Grants XXXX XXXX Date : XX/XX/XXXX After raising XXXX kids, working in the XXXX and XXXX XXXX, I decided to work on my goal of getting a college degree. I pursued a degree in XXXX and currently work as a XXXX in a XXXX XXXX in Idaho. I financed my education through XXXX grants and student loans. In XX/XX/XXXX, I received {$3500.00} in XXXX grants. In XX/XX/XXXX, I received {$2000.00} in XXXX grants. In XX/XX/XXXX, I received {$2000.00} in XXXX grants. In total I received {$7500.00} in XXXX grants. I graduated from XXXX XXXXXXXX University on XX/XX/XXXX.
To receive the grants, I participated in the XXXX XXXX XXXX. I read and signed the service obligation agreement. Part 2 of the service obligation states that, I must confirm to my XXXX grant servicer in writing within 120 days after I have completed or otherwise ceased to be enrolled in a program for which I received a XXXX grant that 1. I am employed as a full time XXXX in accordance with the terms and conditions.
2. I am not yet employed as a full time XXXX, but I intend to meet the terms and conditions of my service obligation as described above in item 1 of this section.

Also, every year requires an annual certification form signed by the school administrator.
My official graduation date was XX/XX/XXXX. The date to certify should have been XX/XX/XXXX ( 120 days after graduation ). However, somehow the certification date was changed to XX/XX/XXXX. Also, the annual certification date should have been XX/XX/XXXX. On XXXX XXXX XXXX, my XXXX grants were converted to loans. I questioned this conversion, the timing of it, and wrote a 1st round dispute requesting the newly converted loans be returned to XXXX grants. This request was denied.
I am requesting a second time that the {$7500.00} in XXXX grants plus interest that was converted to loans be returned to the XXXX grant status.
