JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Blocked from his education, Randy Durden says his access has been denied from FSCJ's student website until he can come up with a way to repay the school money they promised him in Pell Grants by mistake.
"I can't register for classes, I can't graduate, can't get transcripts or anything," said Durden.
A petition started by Durden, first shown to Action News on Sunday, has grown 500 signatures long, and with little response from FSCJ, he says he's been forced to ask attorneys and lawmakers for help.
Senator Aaron Bean says the school should be doing something to help the students impacted.
"If you were awarded something you shouldn't have, then certainly work with them on getting that money back so it can go to whoever it rightly belonged to," said Bean.
FSCJ sent a letter out to students authorizing a 90-day grace period to enter a repayment plan, but Durden says he shouldn't have to pay the school a single cent.
"They messed up, it's their fault, not mine," he said. "They need to man up and pay their bills and not look at their students that are trying to better themselves and their education in order to get the money."
Ten students are now slated to meet with an attorney Wednesday evening to see what type of legal action they can take.
