IOWA CITY (AP) -

Three Iowa public universities are joining in efforts to collect more than $15 million in outstanding debts from students and customers that use their services.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports the University of Iowa, the University of Northern Iowa and Iowa State University want to collect outstanding tuition, specialized loans and various other charges.

They have issued a joint request for proposals from external agencies to help collect the funds.

Officials say no outstanding account will be sent to outside collection agencies until after the school's internal collection service has offered multiple repayment options to a former student.
