I currently owe the community college here about $850 because of an accident I had with my vehicle which totaled it and I can't apply for financial aid because of it. I lost my transportation and was unable to get to class. I barely kept my job through it. I tried to speak with someone and apply for a withdrawel but the response I got was "you weren't injured so you could have found a way". I know this doesn't sounds like much but I barely make enough to scrape by with my current job. I have been looking for another but have been unsuccessful. I feel like I am stuck in stagnation of I can't get a better job unless I go back to school & I can't go back to school until I find a better job. I would be overjoyed to go back but even a payment plan would mean I would either have to cut out gas or food. Is there anyway I would be able to get out of this rock & hard place? Can I go to a different school with student loans or use student loans to pay back my debt so I can again be moving forward? Is there anything I can do or options that I am not aware of?

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
