The actual article also says nothing about the loan. When you take out the loans, you owe the government, not Ivy Tech. If anyone owes Ivy Tech, it's probably because they either didn't qualify for enough financial aid to cover all of their tuition and fees or they just chose not to take all of it.

Foodstamps are federal and the federal opposes the drug test, same with medicaid, in Indiana they want to drug test for TANF

it actually says when a student gets a loan its through the school there basically the cosigners on the loans to put it in easy terms so when u don't pay they lose.

That is not true. The loan isn't actually gotten through the school. It's a federal loan that YOU are responsible for paying back. If you don't pay it back, the government will keep your tax check, not the school. The school just gives the loan underwriters the information they need to qualify you for the loans.

well then my tax check had 338 held this year and that's what I was behind on my student loan and it said ivy tech took it I wasn't behind last year or the year b4 and I got my whole refund back so it had to either of been a slim to none chance that it was the exact same amount or it was for the student loan..

Here are your tax dollars at work - financial aid is just another form of government assistance. Meth heads go from one college to another trying to get more money. They enroll, attend class long enough to get their refund then you never see them at school again. When their assistance is cut off from one school, they will try another. It is a joke but no one is laughing.

I no so many people with degrees can't find a good job or work at a low wage job they hate in Richmond.

Pitful what happening to Richmond.

$12 million is owed to the 2 colleges IU East and Ivy Tech

No good paying jobs to pay the schools back.

This year has just but a little rougher year I have only been making 8.50 an hour where I'm at and I can't afford the extra hundred a month for the student loan.. and before anyone goes on I did finish school I never got extra on a loan I have an associates degree in criminal justice I paid all my loans for 2 years I was working at bates ville casket making decent money until they had a layoff and had to take the job I'm at now to make ends meet I have applied at several places trying to use my degree for criminal justice waiting on a call so I can get back on my feet but for the time being I got the job I have now. I also just found out about a thing I can do where I don't have to pay back until my money situation gets better Sallie Mae is sending the paperwork to defer the payment..
