What Is This Lawsuit About?
A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against The University of Tampa (“UT” or “Defendant”). The class action lawsuit involves whether UT breached its contract with its students to provide physically in-person, on-campus educational services for the Spring 2020 Semester by transitioning to remote learning and services in March 2020 without issuing partial tuition and fee refunds. UT denies all allegations of wrongdoing and liability. There has been no finding of liability by any Court. However, in order to support its students and to resolve the matter, but without admitting any wrongdoing, UT has agreed to establish a Settlement Fund to resolve all claims in the Action (the “Settlement”).
Who Is In the Settlement Class?
You are included if you are/were a UT student who paid or on whose behalf payment was made to UT for Spring 2020 Semester and who remained enrolled as of March 1, 2020. Those included in the Settlement will be eligible to receive a pro rata (meaning equal) portion of the Settlement Fund, which will be based on the total out-of-pocket amount of tuition and fees (excluding room and board) paid for the Spring 2020 Semester.
