Foley & Small also represents students who have been the victim of fraudulent student loan practices under federal student loan programs. This has been an ongoing area of concern throughout the country where some for-profit colleges and trade schools charge excessive tuition and fail to provide quality educational programs leaving the student with a worthless degree and a huge student debt. Also often occurring are educational programs where students have unacceptably high drop-out rate thereby being left without a degree and excessive student debt.
