What Is This Lawsuit About?
A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Lindenwood University (“LU” or “Defendant”). The class action lawsuit alleges LU breached its contract with its students to provide in-person educational services for the Spring 2020 Semester by transitioning to remote learning in March 2020 without issuing partial tuition and fee refunds.
Who Is In The Settlement Class?
You are included if you are a person who paid LU tuition or fees in the Spring 2020 Semester (including in connection with any school terms or courses offered in the Spring 2020) for educational services that, absent the COVID-19 pandemic, would have been provided in-person, and whose tuition and fees have not been refunded.
What Does The Settlement Provide?
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 you paid for the Spring 2020 Semester. If the Settlement is approved, payments will be made via a credit to all current student accounts or, for inactive students, either in the form of reducing an unpaid balance on the inactive student’s account, or via a check (or via Venmo or PayPal if elected).
