You can if were promised that your credits are transferable, but now you are unable to do so. Essentially, you would be suing the school for material misrepresentation if you enrolled in the school based on the false promises made to you by the school.

You would need an Attorney who handles education/school law issues to assist you with the case.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
