A month to two months before the doors closed staff was dwindeling down. Office staff such as financial dept., career counselors that were supposed to set up internships, job placements were gone. It was very stressful luckily I did graduate but have not found a position since I graduated in 2009.
There is a "closed school" cancellation of student debt. Consult a lawyer who does student loan work.
To qualify for “Loan Discharge due school closure” the borrow must have been enrolled or withdrawn within 90 days of closure (120 days starting July 2014). You completed the program of study and graduated so you do not qualify for the loan discharge based on school closure. Contact an attorney who does student loan work. You may have another defense to repayment. You can search for an attorney using the Avvo "Find a Lawyer" link at the top of this page.

You might be able to, especially if the school was in hot water. I would consult an attorney who is well versed in student loan law, and not just bankruptcy.
