JACKSON, Miss. (WCBI) – Give us our tuition or give us your taxes. That’s the choice some Mississippi community college students can make.

A new law sitting on Governor Phil Bryant’s desk will give community colleges a new way to collect past due tuition payments.

The schools will be able to seize state tax refunds of students who don’t pay tuition or other debts owed to the two year schools.

Nationally the default rate on two year college loans and payments is just over 18%. If the governor signs the bill, it would take effect July 1.
