The University of New Mexico is trying to collect millions of dollars in unpaid tuition and fees. The Albq Journal is reporting that in some cases, that even means suing former students to get them to pay up. It’s something universities across the country have done, but now UNM says it is reconsidering the lawsuits. Most of the time, UNM says, students live up to their financial responsibilities–but not always. Students can rack up debt by failing to keep up with their payment plans or school loans, by losing a scholarship or just by dropping out and missing the deadline to cancel classes. The university says it’s trying to collect millions of dollars in unpaid tuition and fees from former students–$9.9 million as of September.
