I'm 21 years old, I went to college when I was 17 for one semester, but I wasn't responsible enough and my grades fell enough to lose my PELL grant. I work for minimum wage but I could save up enough to take one or two classes by myself, I'm wondering if that could get my PELL back if I did well. I also have an outstanding stratford loan from before, which I know will prevent me from getting PELL, how would I find out how to pay it? when I finally called the people that it was through (about two years ago) they said it was defaulted and they had no idea how I could clear it up now.
