Slightly off topic, but I encountered this problem recently. I graduated few years ago with a bachelors and got my diploma and a bunch of transcripts. When I applied to WGU I felt it might be faster to send the transcripts via clearinghouse so I tried to place and order and found out that there is a financial hold on my account. On calling the school I found out that there was apparently a $60 parking ticket which has mushroomed into a good $400 something fine with all the interest and late fees. I honestly don't remember or re call anything about this ticket. I got around this issue by just mailing one of the transcripts I had thankfully got at the time of graduation. Remember, the school doesn't allow diplomas to be issued to students with outstanding accounts so this has to have happened after I graduated. It doesn't affect me right now but I'm kinda pissed off at how they keep your transcripts hostage so I would like to contest this. Is there a statute of limitations for debt collection?
