TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Stillman College in Tuscaloosa plans to use debt forgiveness to lure former students with outstanding bills back to campus to complete their degrees.

Stillman President Peter Millet tells the Tuscaloosa News (http://bit.ly/29te6p4 ) that a percentage of returning students’ debt would be forgiven each semester if the student enrolls and pays full tuition.

Under the program, former Stillman students who haven’t been enrolled since summer 2012 may be eligible to have up to 100 percent of their existing debt erased.

Millet said some students’ college education is stalled because they can’t take more courses until they’ve paid the bills from previous semesters in full. That doesn’t benefit the students, who may drop out, or the schools, which frequently aren’t able to collect the outstanding funds.
