Recently my college was sued and lost due to false advertisement/fraud. I have received a check in the mail as part of my payout due to this. I have also noticed many people in the comment sections of this page were mentioning a process in which I could potentially go to the student aid website and request that my student loans be forgiven under the grounds of fraud committed by the school. Is this just people talking angrily or do I have legit potential to appeal my student loans?
If I have a legit argument, would I be able to get back what I paid into the loans or simply just not have to make another payment?
