Dwyane Wade's Dad -- Sued Over College Loan

Dwyane Wade's father wasn't always banking on his son becoming a gazillionaire ... because he took out a loan to attend trade school back in the day ... a loan he allegedly never re-paid.

TMZ has learned ... D-Wade Sr. is being sued by the U.S. Govt. for defaulting on a $4,630.46 loan intended for higher education.

According to the docs, Wade Sr. borrowed the cash to attend the Environmental Technical Institute -- which specializes in the heating, air conditioning and refrigeration industry.

The loan was approved in 2001 -- the same year Dwyane Wade Jr. entered his freshman year at Marquette University.

The U.S. Govt. is going after Wade Sr. for the full amount of the loan -- plus interest -- totaling $6,221.44 ... which DW Sr. could probably find in his son's couch cushions.

Attempts to reach Wade Sr. for comment were unsuccessful. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
