If they get a judgment, they can levy on your assets, subject to your rights of exemption.  If you owe them only $300, it's unlikely that they would try to levy on you because it's too expensive.  But a lot depends on the terms of your loan, how much you actually owe, and the state you live it (exemptions vary a lot).  It also depends on how much by way of levyable assets you have.
