QIf I know I cannot pay off my collections debt in 3 years, is it worth it to pay anything at all?

I have a few smaller collections debts ($100-$600) from various companies. I had planned on paying them all off next week in one big swoop. However, recently a college debt has left the college and been sold to a collection agency. Now that it is owned by the collection agency, it is due in full instead of payments, and on my credit report it will show a "Non-Payment" $17,000 debt. So the question is, if I know I cannot pay $17,000 dollars in 3 years, should I even pay any of them. In 3 years they will fall off my credit report, and if I pay them early, I will still have a huge $17,000 debt. Can I have something on my credit report saying I am making On TIme payments to a collections agency? Or is it paid in full or nothing?



P.S.- I understand that it is my debt and I need to pay it, while I appreciate the moral advice, I do not need for someone to tell me it again. If you do not have advice on the question I have, please refrain from demeaning, negative, or otherwise unhelpful comments about how I should pay my debts. Thank you. (I'm not trying to be rude, but I see people attack others on here instead of answering their questions.)
