Welcome! Thank you for your question.
You tuition agreement with the school is essentially a civil contract
. If the agreement says that you owe 100% of the tuition after a certain deadline then your original agreement and subsequent withdrawal can be considered a breach of contract
and you would owe what ever the contract says that you continue to owe. There is not a law that would prevent them from enforcing their contract for tuition with you.
The way such a contract would be enforced by the school would be to sue you in civil court for breach of contract. It is going to be up to the school on whether they will ever go after you for breach of contract. Here is a link to the various states statutes of limitations on a written contract like this. Find your state and you will see how long the school has to sue you for breach of contract. If they do not sue you within the time of the statute of limitations
then they are forever barred from suing you on this contract.
