Q: Does the school owe me more? Or no? Their website said the school could be finished 100% online, but now it can't.
2 months, with school that is with the Texas tdlr, has to drop out this month. I emailed questions before starting to make sure the program was fully online as the school's website stated, I have the school email stating it is fully online, in their handbook it states can finish 100% online. We agreed that I would do part-time, finish in ten months, 20hrs a week until 750 by JUNE. I took out a loan to pay for this school. A month in they said that tdlr was going to get rid of the online program, they knew this for a while, but students didn't, but they PROMISED online didn't have to worry we could finish online, 2 days ago thy emailed us and said if we don't get all our hrs by January we get kicked out r we have to come on campuses. Cant, i live 3hrs away, I only applied because promised 100% online. Is this misrepresentation? I could not get the hrs unless I never eat/sleep. They only want to give 2,300 back out of 6,300 i paid, I'll pay for the kit they sent but do they owe me more?
A: It could be a misrepresentation depending upon what they knew and intended at the time they set up their website, sent the email, published their handbook, and promised you could finish online. Or it could simply be a breach of contract. Or it could be something completely outside of their control that they only learned about later.

A: I am working on a case currently where it is likely that I am going to have to sue a University on behalf of a student. I would need to see all supporting documentation from you to help develop a strong legal strategy. It may not require a lawsuit, but I would need to see the documentation.
