Facing Bankruptcy as a Student

Many Americans go through extensive schooling in order to prepare for an exciting career or just to improve their appreciation of some aspect of life. However, this education comes with a high cost. A student can acquire substantial debt in a relatively short period of time. To make matters worse, students rarely have the opportunity to immediately get a job that pays enough to cover the cost of these debts. The result of this conundrum is the possibility of bankruptcy for many students.

Student Bankruptcy Concerns

When a student files for bankruptcy, there can be several unique concerns or problems. There are some options or challenges that may be unexpected when a student approaches bankruptcy proceedings. These issues can include the following:

  • Student loan debt cannot be discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy
  • Tuition credits are exempted under Ohio’s state exemptions
  • Low-wage workers may be able to exempt more of their paycheck than normal

Students facing bankruptcy may need to be especially careful about filing for bankruptcy exemptions and other methods to reduce the overall impact of bankruptcy on their already troubled finances.
