I am from North Carolina and I attended DeVry University in Decatur, GA back in 1997. I went for a year and half and then had to withdraw for personal reasons.
My father had borrowed money from his 401K to help pay for my tuition. I also received goverment loans to cover the extra expenses.
The school had something called an Educard which was an account that you could charge your books and some of the other college expenses to and pay on a monthly basis. When I left the school I thought all my expenses from this Educard was paid in full but to my surprise when I enrolled in a local college years later I listed this school as previously attended school and therefore had to requested a copy of my transcript but was unable to get it because the school says that I owe them money from my Educard account ($3,259.00).
I have enrolled in another college & I have taken all the courses that I could without actually having a major but the school will not let me official enroll in a program of study until they have all official transripts.
How long is a transcript valid (it has been over 10yrs since I attended the school), can you omit a school & if you have retaken any courses that are listed on the transcript that would be valid or transferable to the new school what difference does it make if you get the transcript or not?
