If notice is so given to the corporation:

(a) as from the end of the day stated in the notice, the corporation is discharged from liability to make further payments to the student under the contract; but

(i) are taken not to be payments of financial supplement made under the contract; and

(ii) are repayable by the student to the corporation; and

(iii) may be recovered by the corporation as a debt due to it by the student.
