Review: UWM is utilizing unfair practices to collect a tuition debt, not to be confused with a loan. My loans were returned to FAFSA for dropping out of school. If my loans were taken by UWM, then I wouldn't owe this balance. However, I filed BK Ch7 and discharged Mar 2014. This debt is from 2010. They will not release the debt from me and trying to force a payment plan. Please help, as they are not responding to my emails at all. I have set up payment plans on my student loans with sallie mae and us dept of education.Desired Settlement: I would like to have a 0 balance as I am cleared of any debt before mar 2014. I would like to stop being harassed by their creditors.

Review: I HAVE A PERKINS LOAN WITH UWM, I WENT INTO A CHAP 13 BANKRUPCTY IN 2009. HOWEVER UWM STATED THEY NEVER RECIEVED NOTICE SO THEY REPORTED MY LOAN AS DEFAULTED. I DEDCIED TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL AT A DIFFERENT COLLEGE. WHEN I APPLIED FOR FINANCIAL AID THEY ADIVSED ME THAT I WAS SHOWING DEFAULTED ON TWO SCHOOL LOANS SALLIE MAE AND UWM. SO I CALLED SALLIE MAE AND PROVIDED THEM MY BANKRUPTCY INFO. THEY GLADLY CORRECTED ALL NEGATIVE CREDIT REPORTING AND PROVIDED ME A LETTER STATING I WAS ELIGLIBLE TO RECIEVE AID. NOW UWM THATS WHERE MY DEMISE BEGAN. EVEN THOUGH I PROVIDED THE REP MY BANKRUPCTCY INFO (GAIL V) AND SHE SUPPOSEDLY CORRECTED MY CREDIT REPORTING BACK TO WHEN IT BEGAN (I HAVE YET TO CHECK MY CREDIT REPORT YET) SHE ADVISED ME IN EMAIL ONCE I MADE THE PAST DUE AMOUNT PRIOR TO MY BANKRUPTCY OF $123 THAT I WOULD GET A LETTER STATING THAT I AM ELIGIBLE FOR AID AGAIN. WELL I DID AND NOW SHE IS TRYING TO RECANT EVEN THOUGH I HAVE IN WRITING AND MY ATTY SPOKE TO UWM'S ATTY PER HER REQ. THEN I JUST RECIEVE AN EMAIL FROM HER TODAY WITH THESE REGULATIONS BASICALLY STATING THAT I NEED TO PAY MY LOAN IN FULL BEFORE THEY ISSUE ANYTHING. UWM COLLECTIONS AND ACCOUNTS ARE INCOMPETANT LIARS. NOW I AM LEFT WITH THE BURDEN OF PAYING MY LOAN OFF AND PAYING FOR SCHOOL BECAUSE UWM WANTS TO BE JERKS ABOUT SOMETHING SO SIMPLE AS $123!!!!! SALLIE MAE WHICH IS MUCH BIGGER HAD NO ISSUES WITH HELPING ME. ITS NOT LIKE I WAS TRYING TO GET OUT OF NOT PAYING IT. IF I HAD KNOWN THE BILL WAS PAST DUE AS MY CHAP 13 STATED I DIDNT NEED TO PAY ANY BILL I WOULD HAVE PAID THEM ASAP THERE LITTLE $123!!!!!!! ALSO ONCE I MADE THE PAYMENT I WAS ADVISED THAT IT WAS REVERSED FROM MY ACCOUNT AS UWM WOULD NOT TAKE IT!!Desired Settlement: ALL I WANT IS FOR UWM TO PROVIDE ME A LETTER STATING THAT I CAN RECIEVE FINANCIAL AID FROM MY CURRENT SCHOOL ONCE I PAY THE $123 WHICH UWM'S ATTY AND MINES AGREED UPON.

Re: Business: Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System,doing business as the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Complainant: [redacted]

Complaint No.: [redacted]

I represent the University, and am writing in response to your letters to Kirsten Archambeau, dated August 16 and 31, 2013, concerning Revdex.com’s complaint number [redacted]. I apologize for the delay in our response. UW-Milwaukee denies the

allegations in the complaint.

I would be happy to respond in full to the complaint against the University. However, in order to do so, the Complainant must complete the attached “Consent to Disclose Records.” Federal law, specifically the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, 20 U.S.C. § 1232g et al. (“FERPA”), prohibits the University from releasing information in education records without a signed release.

In the event that the Complainant fails to provide such release, I ask that you dismiss the above-referenced complaint against the University, as UW-Milwaukee is prohibited by law from responding.

Sincerely,

Consumer

Response:

Review: I have a past due balance with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee from taking classes. I couldn't pay the total bill off so it was sent to the Dept of Revenue. A levy was taken on my check so $40 every two weeks is going toward the bill and also my state taxes for the pass two years have been taken and added towards the bill. The issue is the University has an outlandish interest rate on the bill along with a penalty fee. So everything that I am paying is going towards interest and not the bill. The bill is not a loan so I'm sure why interest is being add. I am also paying so I don't understand why a penalty fee is being added. My initial bill was approximately $3800. I have paid approximately $2400 toward the bill, but almost none of that money is actually being applied toward the initial bill. I only have one more semester left of school and I am really trying to pay what I can to finish but its not helping because its only being applied to interest. I requested that the money I paid be applied to the initial balance so I can pay it off within the next 2 months so I can attend school and finish next semester but was declined. They stated that is the way is it.Desired Settlement: I would like to have the money I paid adjusted and credited towards the initial bill so I can pay off the remainder and finish my last semester.

I keep getting notifications from the state of Wisconsin that I owe that bill. My chapter 7 bankruptcy has been discharged, and Im no longer liable for that debt. Yet Im still being held liable for this debt. The Bankruptcy courts sent an electronic discharge notification to UWM in October of 2013.My ssn number is [redacted] is [redacted]Desired Settlement: Do to the chapter 7th bankruptcy being discharged; Im no longer liable for this debt. My case number is [redacted]. Im asking that this debt be removed and notification be sent to the state of Wisconsin that I do not owe this debt.

Review: I have been a Student of UWM Milwaukee since Fall of 1996. I do love the campus and want to return. In Fall of 2004, I was originally told by UWM that I was not eligible for financial aid, after I was all ready attending classes. I was forced to drop my classes. Within 2 weeks, I recieved an financial aid reimbursment check. I was told I was eligible for financial aid then. I then tried to get back in all my classes but could only retain 3 of my original 9 credits. I was then told I was not eligible again since I did not take the required 6 credits. I spoke to an assistant dean of students who gave me a $1200 tuition credit to take one of the classes the following semester. Well I could not take it since I was no longer eligible for future aid and I needed to pay the overpayment back. I also filed chapter 7 in September 2005, and it was discharged in 2006. My state taxes have been offset since 2005 and brought my principle balance from $6650.00 down to $1481.81. I also have been paying $25.00 extra since 2008 each month. I resently contacted the Bursers office at UWM and tried to negotiate a $3000.00 settlement. They stated I needed to pay $7000.00 before December first since I now have over $6000 in collections and interst costs, my total final bill is over $9000.00. They also charged me interest when my bankruptcy was in litigation. They also stated this bill still stands since I signed a letter back in Aug 2004 that stops me from filing bankruptcy. No where on the letter does it use the word bankruptcy. I thought, at the time, it was a letter stating that I would make my tuition into two payments. Which is a standard letter that is always signed when waiting for financial aid. They stated they can not negotiate any further since it is mostly collection costs. I have contacted the Collection agency last year November and they e-mailed a list of charges. Only $2520.04 is collection costs and $5409.07 is interest charges. I have a hard time believing the collection cost climbed almost $4000.00 in one year. All I want to do is finish my education at UWM. I can see why this nonprofit school has made over $300 million dollars last year.Desired Settlement: I would like the University of Wisconsin to accept my offer of $3000.00 to settle this debt. I am also consolidating an additional $2000.00 from my Perkins Loan in December, which is also apart of the original $6650.00 principle repayment. I was a Senior when all of this happened and would like to get my Post Secondary education in History.

Review: I filed chapter 7 bankruptcy, towards debt that I had including at UWM, bill. I have yet to have this matter resolved. UWM, refuse to respond to the last complaint and when I contacted the department requesting additional information they decline to provide it. I also sent in proof that I filed bankruptcy, all other school bills I included with my bankruptcy were discharges, expect UWM. So my issues is I included this debt in my bankruptcy and UWM, still collected on a debt that that should not done so. I'm not delinquent or in default with any student loan either. So if I owed any money on that end, student loans can make steps to collect a debt. However I'm in good standing with student loans. I owed UWM a bill, and I filed bankruptcy according to the bankruptcy laws I no longer or this debt, and UWM was made aware it was included, and discharged.Desired Settlement: UWM, collected funds on a debt of estimated amount $3,480.00 that was included in a chapter 7, discharged debt. The bill did not cause student loan to go in default at all. I'm requesting a refund of the money UWM collected.
