The Sultzer Law Group has obtained another substantial victory on behalf of college students fighting to obtain tuition refunds due to being subjugated to at-home learning during the Spring 2020 semester. This time, at oral arguments, our team of attorneys successfully argued that the University of Bridgeport failed to keep its contractual promises to provide students with in-person learning, on-campus instruction and services, and access to its facilities in exchange of full tuition payments and mandatory fees. The Court, following precedent, found that oral and written expressions of the university and expressed or implied promises in university documents, including educational pamphlets and its website, can be interpreted to form a student relationship. Without providing students with an on-campus learning experience, the argument can be made that the students did not receive the benefit of the bargain.
What does this mean for you? If you enrolled in a college to obtain access to in-person learning and campus facilities in exchange of tuition payment and were not able to gain access to your college campus in the Spring 2020 semester due to the COVID-19 pandemic, then you may be entitled to a tuition refund.
