Madison, TN asked in Contracts and Consumer Law for Tennessee

Q: Being charged ON Campus fees (for an ONLINE course) when no campus services are available be deceptive business practice

Being charged ONLINE fee and ON Campus fees when the course is only ONLINE. There is no benefit graduate students have from these ON CAMPUS fees and no lecture is given ON CAMPUS due to the course being ONLINE.

CAMPUS is now closed yet graduate students still being charged for ON CAMPUS fees.

TO add fuel to the fire undergraduate students now only ONLINE courses are having their ONLINE fees waived yet graduate students paying both ON Campus fees and ONLINE fees.

This seems like breach of contract and misleading and deceptive business practices.
