Tuition or Student Loan?

Hi, 

 

I was attending school and then got a new job. I fell behind in one of my classes, and the professor withdrew me from the class.  I had student loans out for that term, and it appears that the school gave the tuition money back to the lender. They sent me a tuition bill. 

 

I filed BK and it was discharged in September 2021. I included the school tuition in the BK. The school did not appeal the inclusion. Once the discharge was complete, the school sent me a bill for the tuition stating it was considered a student loan and not dischargeable. In the meantime, I consolidated and refinanced my student loans. 

 

If the school wanted to dispute their inclusion in the BK, shouldn't they have done that prior to discharge?  They have sent my tuition bill to collections and I want to get it resolved as soon as possible. I wanted to get advice here first, but am considering having a lawyer send them a letter. 

 

O Mighty CreditBoards, What say you?

1) What does the contract from which the funds were disbursed call it? 

 

2) Was this your only class?  If not, then the amount at controversy shouldn't be that significant to begin with...

 

3) I've scratched my brain and cannot think of ANY school where a professor went to process a drop.  They either failed someone or felt sympathy if the kid went to talk to them about the deficiencies and then gave the student an Incomplete. 

 

4) The question about BK cannot be addressed without knowing the answer to Question #1.

>25 years at three very different institutions and never have I had the "power" to drop a student from my class (other than the one time a guy showed up at my office with a 1911 claiming he wanted to show it to me since I talked about them in class).
