Common Practices Of Universities

Sasha Breger Bush wants to take the opportunity to share a bit about what student debt looks and feels like on college campuses, for she encounters it every day at work.

It is standard procedure for universities, including the one she attended, to prevent students who owe money to the institution from registering for classes, adding or dropping classes, and requesting transcripts and diplomas.
