Quoting Mr. Knowitall
You chose not to follow the instruction to identify your state, although the gist is going to be the same. When you enroll in school, you enter into a contract with the school to receive your classes in exchange for your payment of tuition. Schools will have a schedule for dropping classes or dropping out of a program, pursuant to which you can receive a full refund, partial refund, or no refund depending upon when you withdraw. If you fail to withdraw before you reach the final deadline, such that you remain contractually obligated to pay the full tuition despite not attending the classes, that contract is enforceable.
In terms of avoiding tuition debt, as opposed to guaranteed student loans, depending on your other debt load you may want to consult a bankruptcy lawyer.
