Attended Charlotte School of Law? You May Be Eligible for a Refund.

Recently, Charlotte School of Law announced its closure after months of uncertainty for students. If you are a current or recent student, you may be eligible to have your federal loans refunded. Be sure to avoid paying for scam services that offer refunds, as this is available for free via government agencies.

Your refund eligibility depends on when you attended and withdrew:

  • Are you a CSL student who attended or withdrew between April 13, 2016 to August 15, 2017 and have not transferred to another college?
    • You are legally entitled to a refund of your federal loans.
    • Apply here or contact your loan servicer about the application process.
    • If you need help finding out who your loan servicer is, log in to My Federal Student Aid.
  • Are you a student who withdrew from CSL between November 1, 2016 and April 12, 2017 and have not transferred your credits to another college?
    • You may still be eligible for a refund, but the Department of Education needs to agree to this. The North Carolina State Attorney General has requested that the Department of Education extend eligibility to students who have withdrawn since December 1st, 2016.
    • To contact Education Sec. Betsy DeVos and demand you also be eligible for a refund, use our form below.
  • Are you a GI Bill student? 
  • Find additional guidance for CSL students on the North Carolina attorney general’s site.

Higher Ed Not Debt will continue to track developments. Please fill out the form below if you would like to receive updates.

Send an email to Betsy DeVos and members of Congress to ensure students and taxpayers are protected throughout this process.
