College Education in the US was, like most all of life in the country, turned upside down in a matter of days by the Covid 19 pandemic. Hundreds of thousands of students, looking forward to Spring on the quadrangle or other favorite campus hangouts were told to pack up and leave all student housing in a hurry. Classroom learning changed rapidly to online learning. All activities, sports and travel slammed to a halt.
These students paid for room and board and most also paid various fees for the privilege of campus life: concerts, intramural sports, student theater and performing arts and more.
Although most every school is losing money, students across the nation are united in the belief that at the very least, these fees and costs that they cannot use now should be returned to them.
Some schools did so, in full, right away. Others have offered partial reimbursement or prorated the fees for the remainder of the semester.
The students reason that the schools no longer have the expense of these activities and therefore no overhead. The colleges say that their expenses continue even with empty campuses.
There is no one solution to this problem. You should consult with an attorney if you cannot get what you believe to be the appropriate remedy from your school
