So I attended a university where I completed my associates, and then went on to get my bachelor’s, well as part of the program you have to take electives,at the time the school offered you to take FEMA classes to count towards the credits, which I needed 22 of them and they were $40.00 a credit Hour total 800.00, I paid 280.00 now this was back in 2012, I never paid the rest, but now I want to pay the balance and get my transcripts since they allowed the credits back then, shouldn’t I be able to pay the balance and get my transcripts, also I believe the wrote the debt off and sent me a tax form for it. I have put a call into the student accounting dept. Please let me know what you think
I don’t know if I more outraged by charging you for the free FEMA classes or the transcript issue.
If they sent you a 1099 and wrote the debt off then I think a successful argument can be made that the transcripts should no longer be held hostage.
However, it really depends what they say once you talk to them. It might just be less expensive to pay the remaining balance than it would be to hire an attorney who is licensed in your state to fight for the release because of the 1099.
