Stop charging students tuition for medical withdrawals

I went to school for one month and due to a medical condition, I had to withdraw. Despite leaving for a medical reason, I was charged $5000 and was told I was not allowed to return until I had paid it all off in full. I have spoken to other students who have gone through the exact same thing.

It is unethical to punish students for having a medical condition, and that is what these schools have been doing. Neither I nor these other people left by choice or for any mistakes we made. This pattern needs to end. These schools are leaving students with medical conditions behind.
