Manhattan, KS asked in Bankruptcy, Consumer Law, Contracts and Education Law for Kansas

Q: Can I sue my University? I have a degree from this university, they are blocking my from applying for their jobs.

I earned a degree from my local university. I have not been able to get a job in my field and now after applying for 100+ jobs on their website over the last 15 years, their application portal will mysteriously not let me apply for anymore and nobody can figure out why. Can I sue them for negligence or discrimination. I am a diverse person and was recently rejected after 3 different job interviews with them. Now I can't even apply anymore. It seems very fishy. Also with their degree I have been unable to get a job in my field and given me a mound of student loans. Now they won't even hire their own graduates or let them apply.

A: You’re going to need some in depth research and data to prove that the degree is worthless or that the university is blocking your efforts to find a job. May be a tough row to hoe.
