A student has sued the University of Missouri System, seeking damages tied to tuition and fees, the St. Louis Business Journal reports.
This comes after the UM System switched to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The suit says that university system has not refunded any tuition and that “refunds for student fees have either been nonexistent or inadequate.”
The lawsuit says that students should get refunds because they “received a diminished educational experience” during online classes.
UM System officials have denied the claims in a statement and said that refunds were given for various costs.
Some of the refunds include parts of the room and board costs and recreation center fees.
We are proud of the work our faculty and staff have done to serve our students during this time of global pandemic.
