Charged for fees after withdrawing from uni
Every university we have looked at follows the SLC payment pattern for refunds which would mean he would pay 25% for withdrawal on 30 November, so I am sure the college is some way out of line on this. However, if there is a CCJ, it looks like a court has determined that the policy is not unlawful.
The only recourse now might be something like writing to the local MP complaining about the unfairness of it all. Find out about the practice elsewhere and go with hard evidence that the college is out of line and make the case they are being totally unreasonable.
Also talk to the SLC and/or SFE
I'm not sure which college is concerned here.
I hope this works out for you both.
