DETROIT (AP) -

Wayne State University has a message for former students who owe money to the Detroit school: Come back and let's make a deal.

Wayne State says it will gradually forgive up to $1,500 in debt if a student returns and enrolls full-time. If a student successfully completes a semester, one-third of the debt will be dropped. Every successful semester will erase more debt.

The school is holding information sessions on June 28 and June 30. Wayne State is calling the program "Warrior Way Back."

Dawn Medley, an associate vice president, says many students "are shut out of the path of higher education" because they owe relatively small debts. She says Wayne State is "excited to reopen that path."
