Colleges slammed with class-action lawsuits demanding tuition refunds

By Around the Web

(THE COLLEGE FIX) — Students at two universities have filed lawsuits against their schools, demanding at least some of their tuition money back after campus officials switched to online learning following the outbreak of COVID-19.

Adelaide Dixon, a student at the University of Miami in Florida, and Grainger Rickenbaker, a student at Drexel University in Pennsylvania, filed class-action lawsuits on behalf of their fellow students in federal court, seeking a refund of some of their tuition costs, CNBC reported Monday.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing guidelines, colleges and universities have shifted to online learning, but have so far declined to issue even partial tuition refunds for students, even though many of them have given refunds for room and board expenses.
