Should Students Get Partial Tuition Refunds After Switching To Online Learning Because Of The Coronavirus?

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Students are suing colleges for refunds over coronavirus campus shutdowns. Columbia University is one of them. It has been named in a class action lawsuit by a student claiming breach of contract and unjust enrichment. The suit says the school did the right thing by closing the campus, but should give every student a 55% tuition refund.

Columbia has so far only refunded meal plans and dorm fees.
