It depends upon the nature of your agreement with the College. If the money is discretionary and you have breached a portion of the agreement, then yes. If not, then they may be forced to pay.

    You did not say what the facts are. If you owe the school I suppose the school could offset anything you owe it. If that is the case what is your gripe?

    There has to be more to it than this. You use the word "illegally" as a conclusion within a question. Try starting from the beginning and explain what is going on.
