American students demand to lower tuition fees if the distance learning continues

American students demand to lower tuition fees if the distance learning continues

| News

Some universities agree with the requirements of their students, while most schools are not going to lower their tuition fees.

"On the Rutgers University website, where I study the FAQ section has a question about refunding college fees. Representatives of the university refused to reduce the fees, which outraged many. We can't use the learning equipment, so there is just no sense in paying the same as usual," - Shreya Patel, an American student, told CNN. In July, Patel filed a petition to cut the cost of attendance at her university (tuition for out-of-state students was raised almost 2.5 times). She collected almost 30 thousand signatures and the university reduced the housing charges by 15% but did not change the price of the tuition fees.

Scott Galloway, professor of marketing at New York University, believes that "universities have cornered themselves by increasing their cost each year." "We can't expect that students would pay about $ 60,000 per academic year for Zoom," Galloway pointed out.

It is expected that in fall 2020 at least 75% of American students will study remotely one way or another. Still, Williams College, Johns Hopkins University, Princeton, Georgetown, Clark University in Atlanta, and several other colleges reduced their cost.

However, most educational centers, from the University of Massachusetts to Stanford, refused to lower their fees. As CNN notes, this will not please their students who discuss options for lowering their tuition fees. For example, Shreya Patel is sure that the well-being of a university with a billion-dollar income can't be compared with the financial situation of most students.
