    Answered . You will need to check the contract signed for the tuition. If it is "under seal" it carries a longer statute of limitations. The contract also may have a choice of laws clause stating which laws apply from what state, If there is no choice of laws caluse then it goes by "lex validitas" or the palce where the contrct was signed. Hope tht helps, but I did not have enough informtion to give a more definitive answer.
