Actually, this happened to me this year. I was trying to get my courses on MUGSI, and of course SOLAR was locked out, so I was playing around and happened to stumble onto my account statement where it said I had money for next year.
I looked into it, and I have NO IDEA about it, but apparantlyI had received a bursary for my grades. I didnt let myself get excited because I figured if I had won it, then they would have sent me SOMETHING, but 3 months later, its still there so its safe to say I actually got it and it wasnt a glitch.
I pretty much freaked when I realized it was still there
So I went and bought a new laptop
So glad I did
