Payments terms were pay as you go, that is pay to enroll in a module, and therefore fees paid (US$14,500) were for all the modules that were taken online in Canada.

Are you asking about whether the student can be sued?

If not, please explain what you are asking is it's just not clear to me.

If this is what you are asking then please let me know when the last time the student made a partial payment towards the debt, when the debt when into default, and whether the student ever acknowledged the debt in writing.

Also, please let me know the province.

They have two years from March 2014 to sue and the likely will sue. There is no reason why they could not.
