Default Billing error

Hi, everybody. Just a quick question. I just turned 18 and have no credit history (always use cash if I can). I owe a technical school XX$ for internet service. Will they be able to take any measures that have a negative effect on my credit report or history? I have no credit report right now (just checked a few days ago on the federal website) so I'm wondering if there's anything negative they can get to stick to my name or if they're just blowing smoking, because I'm broke right now and do intended to pay them back as soon as I get the money but I don't want to get my future credit dinged for taking too long to repay them. I live in Texas if that has any bearing on the answer. Thank you.

edit: did go over my financial records and I do owe them XX$, changed post to reflect this.

Default Re: Billing error

did you sign anything that gives them your SSN? If you did they may be able to adversely affect your credit score. Although, I am slightly doubtful a tech school will go through the trouble of doing so.
