Kilgore, TX asked in Education Law for Louisiana

Q: Do I have to repay financial for classes I never took nor got the money for?

In 2015 I was attending ULM for a second masters in criminal justice. I had 12 hours and was signed up for three/three week summer classes. When I went online to get my books, I had no financial aid. I contacted the office and finally, a week into my first class, it got straightened out. I was a week into the class with no book. I dropped the class, after the drop date and was charged fir the entire class amount. I consequently couldn't take my other two classes because I owed for the one. So, I was charged for those as well. I am paying over $5000 on loans I never received, so where did the money go, it should have stayed within the school, and so they are doubling their funds.

A: A Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. The short answer is that it could depend on the school's refund policy, depending on when during the semester a student withdraws from class. You could repost under the "Education Law" and "Contracts" to try your luck in getting a response there. But an attorney would probably want to arrange a consult to offer guidance - they would need to review school policies. Good luck
