Marinello Schools of Beauty operates 56 cosmetology schools across five states, including two locations here in San Diego (Miramar and El Cajon).  On February 4, 2016 Marinello suddenly shut down all of its locations leaving 4,300 students unable to continue their education and 800 employees out of work.

 The sudden shut down came after the US Department of Education denied recertification of Marinello’s eligibility to participate in federal student aid programs.  According to the Department of Education website, Marinello was notified on February 1, 2016 that its participation would end effective February 29, 2016.  Three days after Marinello received this notification, it shut down all locations.

 Marinello was denied recertification due to serious violations including “knowingly requesting federal aid for student based on invalid high school diplomas, under-awarding Title IV aid to student, charging students for excessive overtime, and engaging in other acts of misrepresentation.”  For students who were enrolled at Marinello, or withdrew within 120 days of its closure, there are two primary options available to addressing their outstanding federal student loans: apply for a closed school loan discharge or transfer their credits to another comparable institution.

According to the Department of Education website, a closed school loan discharge “is a 100% discharge of the Federal Direct Loans, Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program loans, or Federal Perkins Loans you took out to attend the closed school.”  To apply to a closed school discharge, you must complete a detailed application and return it to your loan servicer.  Students who previously graduated from Marinello and were not enrolled at the time of its closure are not eligible for a closed school discharge of their loans.

Compassionate. No-nonsense. Great job. Saved me $85K!

I had three choices: two large groups, or DebtDoc. I chose DebtDoc because of their numerous excellent reviews from clients as well as other attorneys. Also, I wanted someone to provide personal service and have a vested interest in my difficult student loan case.

I certainly made the right choice. DebtDoc's attorneys personally answered two of my phone calls and regularly answered my emails, even on one Sunday evening.

After 30 years of student loan "prison", he got me freedom AND he even got the US Dept. of Justice to dismiss 25% of my loans, which saved me $85K.

I feel like I have a new lease on life because of DebtDoc. I wish I could recommend 10 stars.

Client Testimonial

To whom it may concern,
DebtDoc's attorneys are extremely knowledgeable with the complexities of Federal Student Loans.
I went from a thriving career to full medical disability, ending with an SSDI placement. Unfortunately, I lost everything and became unable to continue making the student loan payments, so it was in deferment for over five years. When the SSDI settled I tried to negotiate an affordable payment plan with the loan holders but they refused my efforts, instead demanding over twice the amount I could afford.
I contacted DebtDoc and found them to be courteous, responsive and quick to assess my situation. They were sure they could help and took time to answer all questions, which relieved much anxiety. Within months they successfully resolved the debt! With much confidence, I highly recommend DebtDoc.
Sincerely,
