Just because your college is closing doesn't mean you're eligible for any type of forgiveness. If you were enrolled at the school and can't transfer your credits now, that's a potential for forgiveness. If you were mislead in enrollment, there's potential for forgiveness.

What did you pay them $599 for? In many cases, these companies are document preparation companies - so you paid them to submit a document for you. Do you know what it was?
