unpaid tuition vs Student Loan

member profile picture

Is unpaid tuition the same as an paid student loan. I took an online course and failed take out a student loan for. The unpaid tuition is now in collections. Does the unpaid student loan laws apply for collection practices on unpaid tuition?

Unsure of what you mean by paid student loan.

I would say YES, you enrolled in the class and that is the same as you passing the class. Most schools charge you at the time of enrollment not if you pass or fail.

It is not so much laws as rules. Tuition accounts are due when you take the course. Depending on the school policy and what is written in the handbook, which are the rules you agree to, you may be responsible for all collection and legal fees. If it was a state school, they can seize state income tax returns.

True. I do not know of any schools that forgive tution for failed courses. Maybe some do but I have never seen it.

My understanding is when you registar for classes upon final enrollement for the semster your tution and fees are due. Well atleast that is how the colleges I attended worked :?

You are responsible for the tuition regardless of how you pay for it. Read what I wrote above.
