This page has information on how you can join a class-action lawsuit against your university or college and receive tuition reimbursement for part of your school fees if your school closed its campus due to COVID-19 and you paid the bill.
Many students choose their universities based on the school’s advertised on-campus experiences. This class-action lawsuit contends that tuition covers more than academic instruction; it includes such things as extra-curricular activities, networking, graduation ceremonies, gym fees, library use, social club meetings, sporting events, student unions, computer labs, and a host of other services. Students often pay at the beginning of each term for services such as room and board, access to parking, and other university facilities, and after their schools closed due to COVID-19, students were denied these same services they pre-paid.
Can Students get a Tuition Reimbursement for the Cost of Unused Tuition and Fees because COVID Shut down their Schools?
The students are alleging breach of contract and unjust enrichment. The class-action lawsuit requests payment for unspecified damages, attorney fees, and court costs.
Are you a student that paid for services from your college or university and were unable to fully use them due to your school closing due to COVID-19? If so, you may be entitled to a refund.
You may already have asked for a refund, and your school may not have taken timely action on your demand.
How do you Join the Class Action Lawsuit and get Reimbursed some of your College or University Tuition?
I am working closely with The Anastopoulo Law Firm and monitoring the tuition reimbursement situation closely. They have already filed class-action lawsuits against several institutions and are actively seeking additional cases. I am local counsel for this area (Pennsylvania) and have already helped to file suits against Penn State University, the University of Pennsylvania, Temple University and the Pennsylvania College of Technology. I chose to do this because my own daughter who recently graduated from the University of Colorado is in this exact situation and I started a class action lawsuit on her behalf. Other students are experiencing this same injustice. I will review cases against any colleges and universities including cases against such institutions in Pennsylvania. If your college or university has failed to meet your expectations on refunding fees and tuition, and you are interested in learning more about your options, or in potentially joining one of our class action lawsuits, please give me a call.
