So, today I found out that my federal student loans were rehabilitated and back on track. This means that I was able to do our taxes without having to worry about our federal refund being taken by the Department of Education due to outstanding defaulted debt.
This also means that I'm able to qualify for financial aid for the second short semester and summer. That means that I'm able to complete my associate's degree and transfer out to a four-year school by the end of August.
So I did our taxes and I found that our state refund is about what I expected. However, due to some credits for which we now qualify, our federal refund is more than double what I expected. Credit cards are about to be paid off. Woohoo!
