Dear Maria,

Another school will accept you but don’t count on any classes you took at DeVry, transferring. DeVry will also continue to pursue you for the balance they claim you owe. If the balance is on a student loan they will not have many, if any, options to repayment the balance other than what they share with you.

I would suggest you call DeVry and work out a suitable repayment plan based on what you can afford and they will agree to accept.

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.
