Student Loans Vs. School Loans & Tuition Bills
If a debt is owed as a result of you attending or attempting to attend school, it does not necessarily mean that the debt is classified as a student loan. For example, let's say you were accepted into college and received a tuition bill, however you were not able to attend or cancel enrollment on time. This debt may be eligible to be discharged through bankruptcy. If you borrowed money from the university on a temporary basis while attending college, you may be able to have your debt discharged in bankruptcy.
There are a number of different other school-related debts which may possibly be discharged through bankruptcy, including:
- Vocational school
- Trade school
