VALHALLA, N.Y. (AP) - A suburban New York college has filed more than 600 lawsuits against former students to collect tuition debt.

Unpaid tuition and fees at taxpayer-funded Westchester Community College amounted to $779,000 in the 2013 academic year and topped $800,000 in 2012.

According to The Journal News (https://bit.ly/1qg8KwD ), the suits were filed in state Supreme Court between last January and early October.

So far, the college - based in a hamlet called Valhalla - has won about $117,000 in judgments.

College spokesman Patrick Hennessey says the school tries to be flexible with payments to give students more time before suing.
