I was wondering if I could sue my college for breach of contract

What damages did you suffer?
The handbook is almost certainly not a mutually binding contract. You undoubtedly signed other documents that would be controlliing as to your options.
General rule: no damages = no suit.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE, NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE ATTACHES, FOR INFORMATION ONLY. DO NOT RELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY IN THIS FORUM. Legal advice comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an expressed (written) agreement of representation that forms attorney-client confidentiality. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Mr. Rafter is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the US Federal Courts in Virginia. His answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles--NOT your specific state laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this education exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights. Mr. Rafter is under no obligation to answer subsequent emails or phone calls related to this or any other matter.
Does the handbook say it is a binding contract? I would be surprised if it were.
Well, take the hand book to a lawyer to review your plans
