Legal Question in Credit and Debt Law in Florida

Do I have any recourse if the university I'm attending has refused to let me continue my education, because of an "over-awarded" amount from a previous student loan I've been repaying for 5 years now? The school never researched my financial aid eligibility when I enrolled last year, and now, I'm financially strapped for cash, and I can't get any loans without paying an astronomically high interest rate. They won't work with me in order to continue and have basically told me it's my problem. I did get confirmation from an employee in the financial aid dept who confirmed that they did "screw up" by not verifying. Doesn't that constitute gross negligence?
