My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Wisconsin.
I am disabled and applied for college at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee in April of 2006. I was told that they could not meet my disability requirements for attending school physically; so to wait until next semester and take classes online. I was told by the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation to do a draw on the money I already had in my account to pay for the books and things I needed to attend classes, and DVR would refund my money spent via Purchase order through the department when I needed them; problem is shortly thereafter the school told me they could not accommodate my disabilty and I could not physically attend and they recommended me going online the following semester for classes, and that is also when DVR funding disappeared and then I was left with no monetary support at all from DVR. As of May 4,2012 I recieved a letter from the Department of Revenue saying I owed the state $10,000 with six years accrued interest. From what I understand; this money supposedly owed was not a student loan, but a draw from my grants. All of my student loans were refunded that semester so I thought this was over; but obviously I was wrong. All I wanted to do was attend school again; got turned down and referred to a nightmare of an online "university", that was basically a scam; and now I might get my Social Security garnished to pay a debt to a school that turned me away, and I never got to attend.
