This is not remotely true.


If you don't pay your tuition, there's a snowball's chance in hell that the university in question will release your transcript data, so you won't be able to get transfer credit for the work you already did in the US.


Plus, I assume that the application for your new school will require you to list previous institutions attended, etc. If you omit that information, get accepted, and later the school finds out, there's a non-zero chance they can revoke your acceptance

Trump's problem is with Mexico not Canada, don't believe the hype. Many college students are yapping out their butt about what Trump will or won't do, but the guy's not even in office yet. US has more educational opportunities and many Canadians will tell you this. As someone said, if you're born in Canada then you will always be Canadian. Canada isn't like the US where you lose your citizenship just by living somewhere else for years.

What do you mean that people from the USA lose their citizenship when they live outside the country for a few years? I've known people born in the USA who grew up in one country, work in another, and still have USA citizenship. Because of the far reaching arm of the USA into their citizens' foreign banking, some of those people are trying to get rid of their USA citizenship, but the USA is not taking it away.

USA students attending Canadian schools has increased dramatically in the last 3 years, in some cases by 132%. No one knows whether it's the Canadian dollar, the quality of education, politics, or the fact that Canadian universities are recruiting in the USA (Canadian institutions want the high fees paid by foreign students).

That is totally false. The on!y way a US citizen would lose their citiznship is by renouncing it. My son is a US born citizen that has lived in Japan for 25 years. His wife is Japanese and he is not in the military. He is a US citizen still and travels to the US on a US passport. In fact he also has Japanese citizenship. His 2 sons were born in Japan and they are also dual US/Japanese citizens.

If you don't pay your debts, the creditor can issue a 1099 to the IRS and you will be liable for the taxes on the unpaid debts. If you took goods and services without paying for them, the IRS views that as income. You will then spend the rest of your life on the lamb from the IRS. It's no way to go through life, even if you think that you're never coming back to the US.

Interesting to read that people are giving advice for you to be irresponsible. If you used the services, you owe the money.Pay it.

You are an adult. You get to make you own choice about where you want to live.

If you do not register for school you will not get billed for tuition. If you are not sure, go on campus and find out how to unregister, or ask the questions that you need to ask on campus. See the Registrar, and the Finance Dept. You can withdrawl, if classes have not started....And don't register for classes in America...if you haven't already.

The unpaid tuition thing is curious. Tuition is usually due at the end of the first month of classes. If tuition is unpaid, two things could happen: the name is removed from the classlist, the student cannot continue with studies after completing classes where tuition is unpaid. Regardless, as pointed out above, transcripts are not released. Basically, something is not quite right with grades.

That means that it is not possible to be apply to another school in any country. Even after grades are sorted out, there will very likely be issues with credit for courses completed because of the difference between USA and Canadian post-secondary institutions. Canada has Technical Institutes, Colleges, and Universities, but the USA has all sorts of privately owned institutions - some good, some questionable.
