Student lawsuit wants USD to pay back partial tuition for halting in class learning
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Two students from the University of San Diego filed a class-action lawsuit in federal court against the school because it refuses to issue a partial refund of the tuition and fees its in-person students paid for the Spring 2020, Summer 2020, and Fall 2020 semesters despite the school halting live classes on March 12 due to COVID-19.
The lawsuit argues that once USD stopped providing live classes on March 12, the school no longer could deliver the educational services, facilities, access, and/or opportunities that its in-person students paid for and contracted for.
The class-action lawsuit was filed on behalf of any person who paid tuition and/or fees to attend USD when classes and/or coursework were limited in whole or in part to online attendance as a result of or in connection with COVID-19.
Attorney Yvette Golan joined Good Morning San Diego to discuss the lawsuit.
