    But she didn't finish because they suspended her!

    But that makes sense to me. She admits to breaking a school rule for which the punishment was expulsion, and she KNEW the rule and the punishment. If she had started the semester and Attended enough that she was on the hook for the tuition she owes it. I had to drop out because I was sick- still had to pay like -15 grand. Fair ? No. Sickening? Yes. But the rules stated that whatever the reason if it was beyond the withdrawal date full payment was owed...... So it was owed. Period.

    if the school suspended or expelled a student for not attending classes or failing classes wouldn't you say the student still had to pay what they owed? Same thing.

    The reason she was expelled has nothing to do with this. I went to a conservative college. You signed a contract at the start of each year. If you broke that contract (and morality clause), you faced the possibility of being kicked out. You also would have to meet the financial obligations of that contract.

    U.S. Department of Education said in an email Friday that the issue of whether Powell owes money is between her and the school ? but "it's not at all because of federal rules."
    Help me understand here...

    Okay, so she owes the money. It's been a while but all of my student loans were between me and my lender. I had 2 choices - pay the bill up front and then "reimburse" myself for the costs when the loans came in or wait until the loans come through, the university gets their share and cuts me a check for the overage.

    That said, when I dropped out of grad school mid-semester, my second disbursement hadn't yet funded so I had to repay $3K directly to the university.

    So unless her loan hadn't funded, doesn't the university already have the money from the lender?

    I dropped out of college once (before going back three years later to get my degree) and I got a refund for the time I hadn't used. That's why I was so confused.

    I confess it's also immensely difficult for me to understand going to a college that had rules about my private life. Baffling.

    You can't imagine rules about personal life such as drug abuse, a criminal arrest, showing up to class naked or any number of other personal issues? I think all colleges would have some basic rules that reflect their values. What if a college had a rule requiring students to recycle? If you signed a contract saying you would or you could be kicked out, it would be your own fault if you knowingly broke the contract.

    I can't understand actually choosing to attend a college with rules about non-illegal behavior. Unless it was the only choice due to financial reasons I can't fathom why anybody would agree to such a thing. You don't see a difference between showing up to class naked and having a romantic relationship?

    I once had to translate a letter from immigration to some guy who graduated Pensacola Christian College telling him he couldn't get a visa because he didn't really have a degree (the school is unaccredited). He also had no social skills, I don't know if that was related or not. Ever since then I have been obsessed with that school. I cannot imagine what kind of human being would choose to go there. It's cheap, but you don't get an accredited degree, so no real point in going. It has crazy rules like not going to movie theatres, the "prayer leaders" have to open all your mail, female students cannot work off campus, girls can only go to the beach in groups of 5 including a stasi member to tell if they do something bad, like not wearing panty hose under their bathing suits. I think it mainly appeals to people who want a cheap education, who aren't aware that their degree will be worthless. But there are also probably a lot of strict religious kids who are pushed to go there rather than an accredited school because their parents want them to have no freedoms. I feel for those kids. I wonder why the woman in the OP chose to go to her school, and I wonder if it is accredited.

    It sounds like the perfect place for students who are wrestling with their sexual identity to hang out for four years, actually. No sexual pressure, they essentially neuter all of their students. I bet that places like that are actually crawling with GLBT students who are too browbeaten and shamed by their religion or their parents to accept their own identity/selves. I hope they find one another, even if with that "degree" they can't find a J.O.B
